March 14 at 7:40 PM  JERUSALEM – Israel's military said Thursday evening that two rockets from Gaza were released in the direction of Tel Aviv, encouraging sirens to make sound around the city and pushing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu – whose their re-use in less than a month-strong response.
Residents reported hearing explosions, but there were no reports of injuries or damage. The military said that the Israeli Dome Iron defense system was not adapted, although warning systems worked as necessary.
One rocket probably dropped into the sea, Tel Aviv's mayor Ron Huldai, told Israel's television. He said that he had ordered the city to open all bomb shelters, but life seemed to be returning in the normal way shortly after the incident.
Netanyahu asked an emergency meeting with best security officers.
In the early hours of Friday morning the Israeli military said it was focusing on "eaves" in the Gaza Strip.
Although rocket addresses from Ghaza are not unusual, that was the first time for over four years he focused on Tel Aviv's city. Israel and Hamas faced a 50-day conflict in the summer of 2014.
The rise of Thursday continued a day of unrest in Gaza, where Hamas, the militant group that controls the Palestinian enclosure, went seriously against conditions. living. Some analysts speculated that Hamas might be trying to cause distraction.
Others showed the finger at Islamic Jihad, the second largest military organization in Gaza, saying that the group may have been trying to interfere with the Egyptian attempts to donate a ceasefire between Hamas and Israel. An Egyptian delegation arrived in Gaza on Thursday evening.
Islamic Jihad denied that he was behind the attack. Hamas also refused responsibility, pointing out the attack that took place while the group leaders were meeting Egyptian officials to discuss the retirement fire.
Last year Netanyahu was criticized by members of its own government coalition for being soft on Hamas by agreeing with a ceasefire with that group after some rocket attacks from Ghaza towards communities in southern Israel. His political colleagues criticized Netanyahu's decision to allow Qatar to introduce $ 15 million a month in Gaza to pay the salaries of civil servants of Hamas.
Yaakov Amidror, a former general councilor and former national security adviser, said that he believed Netanyahu was “quite experienced and relatively good” that election pressure would not be a factor in determining his response. “There is no argument in the Jewish community about the need to respond,” he said on a conference call with journalists.
Hamas is usually responsible for any violence that comes out of Gaza, irrespective of the group that made the attack.
President Trump's special delegate to the Middle East, Jason Greenblatt, responded on Twitter, saying: “Hamas expresses its own people violently against Hamas's rule and failures today and NOW tackles rockets at cities in Israel. OUTRAGEOUS! ”
