Rocket sirens blare throughout Tel Aviv and central occupied territories as Hamas says it fired dozens of rockets at Israel in response to the killing of a Palestinian family of 10, including eight children.
Israeli media reported that a rocket has exploded in central Ramat Gan, with footage from Ramat Gan showing a car burning and damage to nearby buildings.
Sirens were heard in Tel Aviv, Rishon Lezion, Holon, Bat Yam, Ashdod, Yavne, Rehovot, Givatayim, Petha Tikva, Kiryat Ono and more.
A man aged around 50 was killed in the rocket strike in Ramat Gan and several people were injured. Police later said two rockets hit the city.
Hamas’ military wing, the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, said it launched dozens of rockets at the occupying regime in response to a pre-dawn airstrike by Israeli warplanes against al-Shati refugee camp, which killed eight children and two women from the Abu Hatab family and injured 15 others.
Meanwhile, the death toll from the Israeli regime’s relentless aerial bombardment of the besieged Gaza Strip, which continued for its sixth consecutive day, has so far killed at least 139 Palestinians, including 39 children and 22 women, while leaving 950 others wounded.
