Default Rockets fired at Tel Aviv, triggering air raid sirens

Ilhan Omar must be happy.

Rockets fired at Tel Aviv, triggering air raid sirens

At least two rockets were fired at the Israeli city of Tel Aviv Thursday night, triggering air raid warning sirens, the Israeli military said.

Sources told Fox News that at least one of the rockets likely was intercepted by Israel's Iron Dome missile defense system. People living in the area reported hearing an explosion in addition to the sirens.

The Israel Defense Forces confirmed in a Hebrew-language tweet that two rockets were fired into Israeli territory from the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip.

There were no immediate reports of any injuries or damage.

Tel Aviv has not been attacked by rocket or missile fire since a 2014 war with Hamas militants.

Earlier in the day, Hamas forces forcibly dispersed hundreds of Palestinians protesting dire living conditions in the territory, which has been blockaded by Israel and Egypt since the militant group took power in 2007.

Videos circulated on social media showed police firing live rounds in the air, beating protesters and hauling them into police vehicles. Hamas says it is restoring order after demonstrators burned tires and blocked roads.

Rights groups say Hamas arrested a dozen activists this week who were organizing the rally under the slogan: "We want to live." The protests were centered in the northern Jebaliya refugee camp, with smaller gatherings across the territory.

This is a developing story, check back for more updates.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Those wonderful and peaceful Muslims were just sending well wishes to Israel, kind of like a fireworks display.
