The Israeli army says a rocket has reached the southern outskirts of Tel Aviv, by far the farthest strike by Gaza militants in two days of fighting.

The rocket landed in Rishon Lezion, a city just south of Tel Aviv, some 60 kilometers, or 40 miles north of Gaza.

Although the rocket landed harmlessly in an open area, it illustrated the significant capabilities that Hamas militants have developed in recent years.

The city, Israel’s fourth largest with a population of some 228,000, lies about 50 kilometres (30 miles) north of the Gaza Strip and there are now fears it could trigger a land invasion.
‘There was a rocket that hit in an open field in the Rishon LeTzion area. There were no injuries or damage,’ a spokeswoman said.
