Hamas terrorists on Tuesday night (local time) launched 130 rockets from Gaza over Tel Aviv, Israel’s largest city.
“We are now carrying out our promise,” Hamas’s armed wing said in a statement. “The Qassam Brigades are launching their biggest rocket strike against Tel Aviv and its suburbs, with 130 rockets, in response to the enemy’s targeting of residential towers.”
Air raid sirens were heard in and around the city.
