The Israeli army on Thursday said that two rockets were fired into the country from Gaza, triggering rocket alerts in Tel Aviv.

While one of the rockets were intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defence system, another landed in an open area, Al Jazeera reported quoting Israeli military forces.

According to Israeli media reports, explosions were heard and a military spokesperson said that the incident was under investigation.

Unnamed military officials said that the projectiles were Iranian-made Fajr rockets and there were no reports of casualties inflicted.

No one has claimed responsibility for the two rockets fired from Gaza.

Following this, the Israeli army said in a statement that it launched retaliatory strikes on "terror targets" in Gaza, without elaborating much.

The last time rocket sirens were activated in Tel Aviv about two years ago, in what turned out to be a false alarm.

Tel Aviv has not been attacked by rocket or missile fire since 2014 when the Israeli military forces had launched an assault on Gaza Strip, administered by the Hamas. (ANI)
