Islamic Jihad says it fired rocket at Tel Aviv

GAZA, Nov 15 (Reuters) - The Palestinian militant group Islamic Jihad said on Thursday it had fired a rocket that reportedly hit Israel’s commercial centre Tel Aviv.

The group, based in the Gaza Strip, said it had fired a Fajr 5 rocket. “We have widened the range of the battle to reach Tel Aviv and what is coming will be greater,” it said in a statement.

Minutes earlier, sirens sounded in Tel Aviv and Israel’s Army Radio reported a missile strike.
