Numerous rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip towards central Israel, the first rocket barrage directed at the area in months.

A massive barrage of rockets targeted Tel Aviv and central Israel for the first time in months. The rockets were fired from Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip.

The IDF confirmed on Sunday that eight projectiles were identified crossing the Rafah area into Israeli territory. A number of the projectiles were intercepted by the IDF Aerial Defense Array, the IDF announced.

Hamas claimed responsibility for the attack, with the al-Qassm Brigade, Hamas’s military wing, claiming that they fired the barrage in response to ongoing IDF operations in the Gaza Strip.

As a result of the rocket fire, loud booms were heard across Tel Aviv, Petah Tikva, Herzliya, and Ramat Hasharon.
