Israeli military aircraft bombed Hamas facilities in the Gaza Strip on Friday, hours after two rockets were launched from the Palestinian enclave at Tel Aviv in the first such attack since a 2014 war. Thursday's rocket strikes were the first on the Tel Aviv area since the end of the 2014 war in Gaza.
A senior Israeli official told Channel 13 news that Israel indeed did not believe Hamas was behind the attack, but rather another "organization attempting to sabotage efforts to achieve calm in recent days".
The newspaper said the Iron Dome defense system was activated and intercepted the missiles.
As well as the strip's rulers, Hamas, other armed factions operate in the territory, including Islamic Jihad, an Iranian-backed organisation that has launched rockets in the past.
Israel and Hamas are bitter enemies and have fought three wars since the Islamic militant group seized power in Gaza in 2007. TV footage showed Israeli interceptor missiles streaking into the sky and detonating.
Israeli security officials told Breitbart News the Israeli defense establishment was taken by surprise by the rocket attacks. No interceptions were made by aerial defence systems.
There were no immediate reports of any casualties or damage.

The attack prompted several municipalities in central Israel to open their public bomb shelters. It said that the aircraft then returned and attacked the same site 4 more times.
