Air Raid Warning Sirens Go Off In Tel Aviv After Apparent Gaza Rocket Attack

At 9:05 PM the rocket alert went off in the Gush Dan / Tel Aviv region.

The Israel Defense Forces confirmed that at least two rockets were from the Gaza Strip toward Israel, triggering rocket sirens throughout central Israel.

The Israeli military says air raid warning sirens were triggered in Tel Aviv around 3:10 p.m. EST. It said one of the rockets landed in an uninhabited area, and that there were no reports of injuries.

HP expands laptop battery recall
The recall was first announced back in January 2018 with about 50,000 units being recalled for "fire and burn hazards". As Tom's Hardware reports , HP actually updated the recall in January this year, but not many people heard about it.

Israel's prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, led an urgent meeting with senior military officials after the attempted strike to discuss a response, local media reported.

The Municipality of Tel-Aviv, as well as several other cities in central Israel announced they are opening all public bomb shelters in the wake of the rocket fire.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility in the enclave, where its dominant Hamas group has been engaged in talks with Egypt on a long-term ceasefire with Israel. The situation on the Gaza border has reportedly escalated due to continued shelling and launches of arson balloons from Gaza into the Israeli territory, and the shooting and killing of protesters, medics, journalists and children near the border by IDF soldiers.
