(MENAFN - Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) Rocket attacks carried out by Palestinian gunners entrenched in Gaza reached the Israeli capital Tel Aviv late on Tuesday, the Israeli Army said.

A spokesman of the army said the Palestinian militants unleashed a wave of rockets in the direction of Tel Aviv tonight. "Several explosions occurred in Tel Aviv tonight as sirens blared across the city," the military spokesman was quoted by Israel Radio as saying.

The spokesman confirmed that Russian-made Grad rockets targeted the Israeli settlements, Beersheba, Netevot and Sedot Hangebe. However, the Israeli anti-missile network, the Iron Dome, intercepted some of the incoming rockets. He also reported several such attacks on other Israeli locations.

Meanwhile, Izz-Eddine Al-Qassam Briagdes, the military wing of the Islamic movement, Hamas, acknowledged its racketeers launched tonight's missile attacks on Israel.

The Brigades said Tel Aviv was targeted with an M-75 missile - one of a group of rockets the Palestinians locally fabricate n Gaza.


Earlier, a rocket fired by the Palestinian gunners stationed in Gaza hit Ashdod city, central Israel, the spokesman said, indicating that its explosion caused no losses.

The spokesman told Israel Radio Tuesday evening that other rockets were launched from the Gaza Strip on areas in Al-Naqab (Negev) without causing any casualties.

Meanwhile, Israel's warplanes launched several air raids on the war-ravaged strip. Also its artillery fired shells on homes and agricultural lands of residents in central Gaza and bombarded agricultural lands in Khan Younis and Al-Zayton, south of Gaza, causing casualties. Palestinian medical sources said three citizens, who were transferred to a nearby hospital in Deir Al-Balah for treatment, were injured due to Israeli attacks.

Two Palestinians, a baby and a woman, were killed in the latest Israeli attacks, brining the Palestinians' death toll in more than one month of offensives to 2,018, Most of the deaths were civilians. Israel said it killed hundreds of gunmen in the fighting.
