HAMAS movement claimed the responsibility, stating that 130 missiles were fired in the direction of the Israeli capital city. According to the outlet, the alarm sirens blared in practically every large settlement in Israel, as the rockets fell in the downtown of Tel Aviv and its suburbs; it became arguably the largest missile attack on Israel so far. The shooting began at about 8.45 p.m. local time. The missiles fell in several central districts of the country. Some projectiles hit their targets, but most of the rockets were downed by the anti-missile defense system, the Iron Dome.
