Hamas Launches Rockets At Central Israel


Hamas fired a barrage of rockets yesterday afternoon, setting off air-raid sirens in the Tel Aviv area for the first time since at least late January.The attack showed that the group retained some long-range missile capabilities.

The Israeli military said that at least eight rockets were launched from the southern Gaza city of Rafah, where Israeli forces have been advancing, "There were no immediate reports of major damage. Israel’s emergency service said that two women were lightly wounded as they fled to a bomb shelter."

Hours after the Hamas rocket attack, an Israeli airstrike on a makeshift tent camp for displaced Palestinians killed at least 35 people, said the Gaza Health Ministry. 

The Israeli military said that its operation was aimed at a Hamas compound. 

Officials said that negotiations could restart in the next week, after a meeting in Paris among U.S. and Israeli intelligence chiefs and Qatar’s prime minister.
