Israeli warplanes dropped bombs across the Gaza Strip overnight, hours after Palestinians fired rockets toward Tel Aviv for the first time since 2014. No one was injured by the Palestinian rocket fire, while news agencies in Gaza said the Israeli strikes injured four Palestinians, including a woman who had her hand amputated. Israel’s military said it had targeted 100 “Hamas military targets,” though Hamas and two other Palestinian groups—Islamic Jihad and the Popular Resistance Committees—all denied responsibility. Israel’s military now says it believes Hamas members fired two missiles “by mistake” as they performed maintenance on the rockets.
