At least two rockets were fired towards Tel Aviv, Israel from Gaza Thursday evening; prompting authorities to sound the nationwide warning sirens for the first time since 2014.

“The two Fajr-5 rockets were fired by Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) in Gaza, the second strongest group in the coastal enclave after Hamas. One was reported to have been intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system while another one is said to have fallen in open territory.  There were reports of a number of Israelis who were treated for shock,” reports The Jerusalem Post.

Local media reports Hamas is rapidly evacuating military posts across the Gaza Strip in anticipation of incoming Israeli airstrikes.
