Israeli warplanes on Friday struck about 100 Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip in response to a rare rocket attack on Tel Aviv.

The Israeli military has concluded that the militant Hamas group of Gaza fired two rockets toward the Israeli coastal city of Tel Aviv.

It said targets included an office complex allegedly used by Hamas to coordinate militant operations in the occupied West Bank.

Israeli officials say that amounts to calling for the Jewish state's destruction, and accuse Hamas, the Islamist movement that runs the Gaza Strip, of orchestrating the protests.

Both Hamas and Islamic Jihad, for their part, have denied any responsibility for the alleged rocket attack, with the latter group issuing a statement holding Israel responsible for the latest escalation.

There have been no reported fatalities, only one man and one woman were wounded, the Gaza Health Ministry said.

Following the first Israeli airstrikes, several additional rounds of rocket fire were launched into Israel. There have been no reports of casualties or damage as of yet.

On March 14, rockets are fired from Gaza towards the region of Tel Aviv.

Rockets fired from Gaza target Tel Aviv for first time since 2014

Israeli Cabinet Minister Naftali Bennett, a hard-line rival of Netanyahu's, called on the prime minister to convene a gathering of his Security Cabinet and demand the army "present a plan to defeat Hamas".

Since then, four instalments of Qatari aid have been distributed to Palestinians in Gaza.

Pompeo also defended the administration's work toward a denuclearization deal with North Korea, saying real progress was made in Hanoi even though a final agreement was not reached.

The Israeli military accused Hamas of firing rockets from Gaza toward Tel Aviv - the first time the seaside city had been targeted since the 2014 Gaza War.

An informal truce between Hamas and Israel had led to relative calm along the border, but recent weeks have seen another uptick in violence.

Netanyahu's main rivalry in the upcoming elections, former army chief of staff Benny Gantz and leader of the Blue and White party said, "Only an aggressive and severe response" was necessary, "otherwise it will be impossible to renew our deterrence".

It is possible that the political echelon felt they could not ignore the launch against Israel's most dense population area, regardless of the enemy's intent.

Danon slammed Hamas saying it uses civilians "as human shields" and that "a terrorist organization that tries to harm Israel will encounter a relentless and uncompromising force".

Islamic Jihad and the Popular Resistance Committees, two smaller Gaza armed factions, also denied responsibility.
