Hamas brigades: Tel Aviv missile 'response to massacre'

Nov. 18, 2012 7:47 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 21, 2012 3:04 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- Hamas' armed wing says it fired a long-range missile at Tel Aviv in retaliation for the killing of 11 civilians in Gaza City on Sunday.

The al-Qassam Brigades said fighters sent a Fajr missile to Tel Aviv, Israel's biggest city, and shelled an Israeli war ship and military bases in response to what it called the massacre of the al-Dalou family.

An Israeli missile leveled the al-Dalou family home in the Sheikh Radwan neighborhood, killing 11 people including four women and four children on Sunday afternoon.

An Israeli police spokesman said Israel's "Iron Dome" interceptor system shot down two incoming rockets from the Gaza Strip on Sunday night and no casualties or damage was reported.

It was the second strike on Israel's commercial capital on Sunday. In the earlier attack, one person was hurt by falling debris from a rocket that was intercepted south of the city.

Israel has killed 24 people on Sunday, including seven children, in the bloodiest day in Gaza since Operation Cast Lead concluded in January 2009.

Some 72 Palestinians have been killed since Wednesday.
