Hundreds of thousands of Israelis across Central Israel ran for cover on Thursday night, as air raid sirens sounded in many cities including, Tel Aviv, Bnei Brak and surrounding areas.

Tel Aviv has not been attacked by rocket or missile fire since 2014, when Israel went to war with Hamas and Gaza.

In the attached videos, you can hear a massive explosion, reportedly from the Iron Dome missile defense system activating.

The IDF says there have been no reported impacts from the two rockets. The rockets appeared to have hit open areas, and did not cause casualties.

Israel’s Channel 10 news, citing anonymous military officials, said the rockets were Iranian-made Fajr rockets.

Initial reports as well as a video (below) indicated that the Iron Dome has been launched to intercept an oncoming rocket. However, the IDF would only say no interception occurred, and did not confirm that Iron Dome had fired.

“Two rockets were launched from the Gaza Strip towards Israeli territory. The alert and warning systems operated as required,” the army said. “No interceptions were made by aerial defense systems. No damage or injuries were reported. There are no special instructions for the civilian home front.”

A spokesperson for Prime Minister Netanyahu says he will holding an emergency security consultation at the Defense Ministry Headquarters in Tel Aviv.

Many analysts are pointing fingers at the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror group in Gaza for firing the rockets.

  1. We will probably watch as the groundswell of mental midgets of the world, from the UN and its agencies, to the Israel hating Democrats, and some leaders from Islamic movements and terror supporters calling on Israel to act with restraint. None of these would hesitate to use lethal force against an intruder in their home. But Israel should tolerate it?

    I hope that the response from Israel would be crippling, not the typical wrist slap. We should take out their government officials, close the crossings to passage of “humanitarian” aid, and inflict damage that includes major loss of life. No, I am not pushing the attack of civilians, but nothing stops these subhuman savages like major numbers of carcasses. We should also move the Gaza border a few miles into the strip.

  2. I don’t know how they live like that. Now they will bomb the ***** out of gaza and the world will call for restraint. I’d like to see any other country in the world restrain itself from constant bombardments.
