The growing assumption among army officials is that last night’s rockets were fired from Gaza toward Tel Aviv by mistake, a defense official tells reporters.
Low-level Hamas forces are believed to have been responsible for the launches.
Two rockets were fired toward the central Israeli city on Thursday evening. In response, the Israel Defense Forces hit more than 100 Hamas targets in Gaza.
Nine rockets were fired toward Gaza border communities overnight and Friday morning, with six of those intercepted. No Israeli injuries are reported.
