Israel launches airstrikes on Gaza after rocket attack
Tel Aviv, March 15 -- The Israel Defence Forces (IDF) launched a series of airstrikes early Friday, hitting back at targets across the Gaza Strip hours after two rockets were fired at Tel Aviv.
The strikes came after an urgent late night consultation between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his defence chiefs, The Times of Israel reported.
On Thursday night, air raid sirens sounded in Tel Aviv for the first time since summer of 2014 as the IDF registered the launches of two rockets from the Gaza Strip. The Israeli military then launched strikes on Gaza targets in response to the attack.
"2 rockets were launched from Gaza at Israel. Our aerial defence system successfully intercepted one of the rockets," the IDF wrote on Twitter.
