The Hamas launched two long-range at the Tel Aviv area on Saturday morning. The rockets landed in the sea causing no injuries or damage. As per protocol, no sirens were sounded and no interception took place as the rockets landed off the coast of central Israel.

Hamas reportedly conveyed messages to Israel that the double launch was “a mistake.”

In response, the IAF struck Hamas sites in Gaza, including a rocket manufacturing site, and IDF tanks hit “military posts used for terrorist activity.”

“The Hamas terrorist organization is responsible for what is happening in the Gaza Strip and bears the consequences of terrorist acts from the Gaza Strip,” the IDF stated.

The weekend’s incidents occurred a few days after a shooting attack on the Gaza Strip border on Wednesday in which an Israeli worker was lightly wounded in the leg by shrapnel. IDF tanks attacked five Hamas positions in the northern Gaza Strip in response. Three Gazans were moderately and lightly wounded.

Hamas has recently threatened to escalate its actions against Israel following its frustration over the lack of progress in the Egyptian-mediated negotiations with Israel.
