IDF: Hamas rocket fire on Tel Aviv was a ‘mistake’ – Arab-Israeli Conflict – Jerusalem Post

The two rockets fired from the Gaza Strip toward Tel Aviv on Thursday night, were likely launched mistakenly by Hamas, the IDF said on Friday. The understanding was based on the IDF’s initial assessment of Thursday night’s events and included the possibility that the rockets accidentally went off during routine maintenance work by Hamas. Despite that assessment, several hours after the rocket fire, Israeli aircraft struck over 100 targets across the Gaza Strip in retaliation to what were the first rockets fired at central Israel since the Gaza War in the summer of 2014.
