The military said two rockets were launched from the Gaza Strip and it would provide further details later.

Israeli news media reported on rocket sirens blasting across Tel Aviv as well as the satellite cities of Ramat Gan, Givatayim, Bat Yam, Holon, Azor and Rishon Letzion.

It would be the first time that Tel Aviv has been targeted by rocket fire since a 2014 war against Gaza militants. There were no immediate reports of damage or casualties. Israeli media said Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was convening senior military and security officers to evaluate the situation.

While no group claimed responsibility for the attack, Israeli Education Minister and member of security cabinet Naftali Bennett told RT he believes Hamas bears responsibility for the incident anyway.

Two sirens blared as loud explosions boomed in Tel Aviv, the Jerusalem Post reported. "The time has come to defeat Hamas once and for all", he said.

Tel Aviv Municipality has opened all public bomb shelters, effective immediately.

Tensions between the Israelis and the Palestinians near the fence separating Gaza from Israel have been mounting since last March, which marked the beginning of the Great March of Return.

The anniversary of the Gaza border protests is in two weeks, on March 30 and Palestinian groups have been preparing events and march to mark the date. The situation on the Gaza border has reportedly escalated due to continued shelling and launches of arson balloons from Gaza into the Israeli territory, and the shooting and killing of protesters, medics, journalists and children near the border by IDF soldiers.
