Red alert sirens sound in central Israel as range of Gaza rocket fire expands

Red alert sirens sound in the central Israeli cities of Bat Yam, Rishon Lezion and Holon as Gaza terrorists renew their rocket fire following the IDF’s killing of Palestinian Islamic Jihad commander Tayseer Jabari.

Several barrages have been fired within the past 20 minutes, but the first rounds only targeted towns closer to the Gaza border.

In Tel Aviv, no sirens have gone off yet, but residents report hearing explosions of the Iron Dome missile interceptors.
