Hamas in Gaza over the weekend fired long-range missiles [2] at Tel Aviv and, for the first time, tried to hit Jerusalem.

The IAF struck back, killing 11 key terrorists and striking more than 300 targets in the Gaza Strip, including medium-range rocket launchers and the regime’s official buildings.

Ground troops and armored vehicles remained massed at the Gaza border, waiting for the order to go in.

For the third time since Operation Pillar of Defense (in Hebrew, Operation Pillar of Cloud) began on Wednesday [3], air raid sirens sent Tel Aviv residents fleeing for cover on Saturday afternoon, as two long-range Hamas missiles hurtled toward the city. An Iron Dome battery, which was only deployed in the greater Tel Aviv area [4] on Friday, went into action for the first time over central Israel, intercepting both missiles. At least one large blast echoed over the city during the interception. Tel Aviv is 85 km. from Gaza.
