Israel Foils Seaborne Attack From Gaza Strip – Quincy Herald-whig | Illinois & Missouri News, Sports

Tuesday’s fighting was the heaviest since a similar Israeli offensive in November 2012. Israel’s military said 130 rockets were fired into Israel. One barrage set off air-raid sirens in Tel Aviv, some 45 miles (70 kilometers) away, signaling the deepest strike yet. The army said the rocket was intercepted and shot down. The siren set off panic in Tel Aviv, the country’s commercial capital, as people scurried for cover in nearby buildings. Israel’s military said it targeted the homes of several Hamas operatives allegedly involved in rocket fire, militant compounds and concealed rocket launchers. Later, it also took out what it said was a Hamas command center embedded within a civilian building. Palestinian medical official Ashraf al-Qidra reported at least 15 people dead, including at least five civilians.
