RABAT, December 4. /TASS/. The militant wing of the Palestinian radical movement Hamas - the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades - said it fired rockets at Tel Aviv.
"The al-Qassam Brigades fired rockets at Tel Aviv in response to killings of civilians by the Zionists," the group said in a statement posted on its Telegram channel.
A while ago, the militant wing of Hamas said its fighters had shelled the city of Ashkelon in southern Israel.
Earlier, the Israeli army's press service reported an air alert in central Israel, where Tel Aviv is located.
Tensions flared up again in the Middle East on October 7 after militants from the Gaza Strip-based radical Palestinian group Hamas launched a surprise incursion on Israeli territory, killing many Israeli kibbutz residents living near the Gaza border and abducting more than 200 Israelis, including women, children and the elderly. Hamas described its attack as a response to Israeli authorities’ aggressive actions against the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem’s Old City. Israel declared a total blockade of the Gaza Strip and launched bombardments of the enclave and some areas in Lebanon and Syria, as well as a ground operation against Hamas in the Gaza Strip.
