In a dramatic escalation of the ongoing rocket attacks by terrorists launching from Gaza, air raid sirens wailed in Yerushalayim and in the central part of the country at about 10:00 PM Israeli time Tuesday; an explosion was heard in the area of Yerushalayim by residents.
Rockets continued to be fired towards Tel Aviv this evening with reports of at least three rockets that were intercepted by Iron Dome missiles.
Air raid sirens were also heard in Zichron Yakov, which is located near Haifa.
