Rockets Hit Central Israel, Near Tel Aviv

Reports that Rishon Letzion, Jaffa have been hit by Hamas rockets

Print Email
Tel Aviv(Wikipedia)

There are now reports that rockets from Gaza have reached as far north as Rishon Lezion and Jaffa. One of the threats has been that Hamas would strike at Tel Aviv and it appears that central Israel is now in range. Earlier this year, Israel ran what they called a “Hit to the Heart” drill to simulate responses to an attack on Tel Aviv.

Air raid sirens rang out in Tel Aviv for the first time since the Gulf War when the city was struck by 39 Scud missiles from Iraq. Below is an amateur video of the sirens sounding in Tel Aviv.

We’ll keep you posted.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at letters@tabletmag.com. Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.

We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.
