Rocket fired at Tel Aviv, explosion heard in city - witnesses
TEL AVIV Nov 17 (Reuters) - Sirens sounded in Tel Aviv on Saturday, signalling a rocket attack on the city, and an explosion was heard, witnesses said.
A cloud of smoke was seen in the sky over the southern outskirts of Tel Aviv, Israel's commercial centre. Israel Radio said it appeared that an "Iron Dome" anti-missile battery had intercepted the rocket in mid-air.
Hamas's armed wing in the Gaza Strip said it fired a rocket at the city, the third such attack since Israel launched its air offensive in the enclave on Wednesday.
