Tensions between Israelis and Palestinians have escalated further as Palestinian militants in Gaza fired hundreds of rockets into Israel, who responded with ramped up airstrikes on the coastal enclave, as unrest spread to cities and towns beyond Jerusalem.
According to Palestinian health officials, Israeli bombing raids across Gaza have killed at least 35 people, including 12 children, with 220 people injured as of Tuesday evening. The Israeli military said it had killed more than 15 militants.
Rockets were fired towards Tel Aviv in the early hours of Wednesday morning. Sirens could be heard warning of an impending attack around 3 a.m. local time. However it was not immediately clear if there were any casualties.
