Israel strikes 100 Hamas targets in Gaza after Tel Aviv rocket attack

Israel strikes 100 Hamas targets in Gaza after Tel Aviv rocket attack

The IDF subsequently announced that it had hit about 100 Hamas military targets, including an office complex in Gaza City allegedly used by the group to orchestrate attacks in the occupied West Bank, an underground facility that was the main manufacturing site of standard-grade rockets, and a military training site that served as a centre for unmanned aerial drones.

Both Hamas and Islamic Jihad, for their part, have denied any responsibility for the alleged rocket attack, with the latter group issuing a statement holding Israel responsible for the latest escalation.

But Hamas denied responsibility and Israeli media, including Ha'aretz and Channel 7 News, later carried reports that the rockets might have been fired from Gaza by mistake.

Brig. Gen. Ronen Manelis, the chief Israeli military spokesman, said the army had been caught off guard by Thursday night's rocket barrage.

The first rocket attack came on Thursday evening, with warning sirens sounding in the Tel Aviv area and residents hearing explosions.

On March 14, rockets are fired from Gaza towards the region of Tel Aviv.

Netanyahu called an emergency meeting with top security officials, after which Israel mounted its response.

The officials were quoted Friday in Israeli media.

Israel's response reportedly went into Friday morning as Hamas continued firing several rounds of rocket fire.

Not only is Egypt in the midst of another effort to achieve a long-term ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, but Israel is just weeks away from a general election.

Others have been hit by tank fire or air strikes in response to violence from Gaza.

Gaza Health Ministry officials said a couple was injured when their house in the southern town of Rafah was damaged.

Pompeo also defended the administration's work toward a denuclearization deal with North Korea, saying real progress was made in Hanoi even though a final agreement was not reached. But Israel's military said it had concluded the group was behind the attack.

Israel holds Hamas responsible for all fire coming out of the territory.

Tensions between Israel and Gaza have been boiling ever since Palestinians began violent protests near Israel's border fence.

In the bustling coastal city of Tel Aviv, sirens wailed late Thursday in scenes reminiscent of the 2014 war between Israel and Gaza militants.

Prior to that the last attacks on the Tel Aviv area came during the July 2014 war between Israel and Gaza militants. They include Salafists inspired by the Islamic State group, as well as Islamic Jihad, an Iranian-backed armed organization that also possesses a formidable rocket arsenal.

"I suggest to Hamas, don't count on it", he told his Cabinet.
