Hamas rockets have targeted Tel Aviv for the first time in months, intensifying conflict amid Israel’s ongoing military campaign.

Hamas fired rockets from Gaza towards Tel Aviv on Sunday, marking the first attack on the city in months.

This show of defiance comes over seven months into Israel’s extensive air, sea, and ground offensive against the militant group.

There were no immediate reports of casualties or damage from the long-range rocket attack, which had not been seen since January.

The Israeli military confirmed that eight projectiles were launched from the southern Gaza city of Rafah, where Israeli forces had recently conducted an incursion though several of the projectiles were intercepted.

The conflict between Israel and Hamas has led to nearly 36,000 Palestinian deaths, according to Gaza’s Health Ministry, which does not differentiate between civilians and fighters.

The current war was sparked by a Hamas attack on Israel on October 7, in which militants killed around 1,200 people, mostly civilians, and took approximately 250 hostages.

Hamas still holds about 100 hostages and the remains of around 30 others, following the release of most during a cease-fire last year.
