For the second time on Sunday, the Iron Dome system intercepted a rocket fired at the Tel Aviv area. An air raid siren sounded in Tel Aviv at around 6:40 pm, followed by a blast. Hamas' military wing claimed responsibility for the firing and said the rocket was a Fajr 5 missile.

 

Air raid sirens sounded all across the Tel Aviv metropolitan area including in Rishon Lezion, Bat Yam, Holon and Bnei Brak. This is the first time since the beginning of Operation Pillar of Defense that two rounds of rockets were fired at Tel Aviv.

Itzik Alfasi, a Magen David Adom official said, "There were two landings – one rocket hit a house and the other landed near the car. The injuries were mainly caused by Grad shrapnel, after the parents and the toddler ran out of the car to seek shelter."

 

Meanwhile, the Air Force bombed the house of Yahia Abia, the head of Hamas' rocket unit. Abia was killed in the attack and the Palestinians are reporting that four other people were also killed, including three women.

 

Abia was responsible for the major part of the rocket fire directed at Israel in the past few days. He was killed roughly an hour after a heavy rocket barrage hit Israel's south. The strike was part of the IDF's expanded activity in Gaza.
