Yes, Hamas fired rockets at this area too
, and fortunately, they only landed in an open area, but that doesn't mean they couldn't land directly in the city limits next time:
Two rockets landed outside of Jerusalem Friday evening as sirens rang out, causing no injuries or damage. Police reported there was "no indication" that rockets landed in the city, stating that "most likely, the rockets landed in an open area outside of Jerusalem."
One of the strikes the IAF led in response
Hamas took credit for the attack, claiming to have shot "an improved Kassam," which it called an M-75, towards Jerusalem. The launch represents the first Hamas rocket attack aimed at Jerusalem.
A rocket is believed to have fallen in the Judean desert, near the area of Takua, though this is not yet certain. Police confirmed one rocket landed in Gush Etzion.
Hours earlier, two rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip in the direction of the greater Tel Aviv area and prompted a red alert air raid siren to be sounded in the city for the second straight day.
The IDF stated that the rocket had not landed in Tel Aviv, but local residents reported hearing an explosion following the siren. No injuries or damage were reported.
The armed wing of Hamas claimed responsibility for that attack as well.
The cities of Be'ersheva, Ashdod, and Ashkelon, and southern towns came under repeated rocket attacks throughout the day. Homes were damaged in the attacks.
was against a Hamas ruler's office, but pay attention to the offensive propaganda used by the AP/CBC:
Israel bombarded the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip with nearly 200 airstrikes early Saturday, the country's military said, widening a blistering assault on militant rocket operations to include the prime minister's headquarters, a police compound and a vast network of smuggling tunnels.
The military also said its air defences had shot down a rocket fired at Tel Aviv — marking the third day in a row that Hamas militants have launched an attack at Israel's largest city. Air-raid sirens blared in the coastal metropolis during the day and explosions could be heard.
Hamas said the rocket was an Iranian-made Fajr 5.
The new attacks followed Friday's unprecedented rocket strike aimed at the contested holy city of Jerusalem that raised the stakes in Israel's violent confrontation with Palestinian militants and dramatically extended the battlefield.
Well just look at the offensive tactic they've used, downplaying the Hamas into "militants" and calling Jerusalem "contested", which is a merely a signal of their opposition to Israel's right to it. The part about a violent confrontation is also fishy, making it sound more like Israel is aggressor rather than the Hamas themselves.
