Hamas strikes Tel Aviv in response to Israeli massacre of Palestinians in Gaza
The military wing of the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas says it striked Tel Aviv with missiles in response to the Israeli regime’s fierce bombardment of the besiege Gaza Strip.
The al-Qassam Brigades announced in a brief statement on Monday that the resistance forces had fired missiles at southern neighborhoods of Tel Aviv and the city of Holon “in response to the Israeli massacres against civilians in Gaza.”
Israeli media confirmed the retaliatory strikes by Hamas and said, “A series of 10 missiles were launched towards central Israel, one of which landed in Holon, causing major damage.”
Reports said a settler was injured as a result of a missile falling in Holon and significant damage was inflicted on a number of cars.
Israeli media also claimed that "seven missiles” were intercepted in an attack on the illegal settlements surrounding the Gaza Strip and Sderot, located in the south of the Israeli-occupied territories.
Israel waged the devastating war on Gaza on October 7 after the territory’s Palestinian resistance movements carried out a surprise retaliatory attack, dubbed Operation Al-Aqsa Storm, against the occupying entity over its intensified violence against Palestinians.
The Israeli aggression has so far killed some 18,000 Palestinians, most of them women and children, and wounded more than 49,000 others.
The Israeli regime has imposed a “complete siege” on the territory, cutting off fuel, electricity, food and water to the more than two million Palestinians living there.
