The Israeli military said Friday it had begun airstrikes in the Gaza Strip in response to a rocket attack on Tel Aviv -- which was the first time the city, some 50 miles north of Gaza, was targeted by rocket fire since a 2014 war against Gaza militants. In a statement early Friday, the army said it was targeting "terror sites." It provided no further details.

The attacks were taking place in the southern Gaza town of Khan Younis, about 15 miles south of Gaza City. The warplanes could be heard flying overhead in Gaza City, where smoke from the explosions could be seen about 15 miles away from some of the strikes.

Palestinian media said a Hamas naval base had been targeted. Israeli warplanes could be heard roaring through the skies above Gaza City.
