Two rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip in the direction of the greater Tel Aviv area on Friday, November 16, prompting a red alert air raid siren to be sounded in the city for the second straight day, The Jerusalem Post reported. Local residents reported hearing an explosion following the siren. No injuries or damage were reported. Thursday’s attacks on the Tel Aviv area marked the first time the center of the country was hit in the renewed violence from the Gaza Strip and the first time that a real siren was sounded in Tel Aviv since the Gulf War in the early 1990s. Palestinian Islamic Jihad took responsibility for the attacks, which came as Operation Pillar of Defense entered its third day. More than 350 rockets have landed in Israel since the operation began on Wednesday.
