Loud explosions rock Jerusalem after sirens sound

July 8, 2014 10:16 P.M. (Updated: July 9, 2014 12:33 A.M.)
JERUSALEM (AFP) -- Three loud explosions rocked Jerusalem shortly after air raid sirens wailed across the city Tuesday night, AFP correspondents said.

The sirens sounded at around 10 p.m., with at least four bright flashes lighting the sky southwest of the city, a correspondent said.

The Israeli army had no immediate comment on the attack which took place as Israel began a military campaign in Gaza.

Media reports also spoke of sirens sounding north of Tel Aviv for the first time as Hamas fired rockets into Israel.
