(GAZA CITY, Gaza) -- Despite optimism and another extension to the Gaza cease-fire on Monday, rockets were launched by both sides on Tuesday, including one rocket that struck an open area in Tel Aviv, an area that hadn't been targeted in over a week.
The Israeli military said it launched air strikes in Gaza as a response to a series of rockets that were allegedly fired at the Israeli communities bordering Gaza. The Israeli Iron Dome intercepted a number of rockets.
Palestinian health officials, however, say that several people in Gaza have been killed.
Earlier Tuesday, the Israel Defense Forces said that the latest rocket-fire was another example of, "terrorists [breaching] the cease-fire and [renewing] fire at Israeli civilians from Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip." The IDF then said that it would retaliate by, "striking terror infrastructure, pursuing terrorists, and eliminating terror capabilities in the Gaza Strip."
