Gaza missiles fired at Tel Aviv
Palestinian militants have attempted to hit Israel's largest city, Tel Aviv, with missiles fired from the Gaza Strip.

An Israeli military spokesman said two missiles had been launched towards the Tel Aviv area but neither had hit it.

One of them is reported to have landed in the sea off the city.

Three Israelis were killed by rockets from Gaza earlier, while 15 Palestinians have been killed in two days of Israeli attacks on Gaza.

While hundreds of rockets have landed in southern Israel in recent days, any missile landing in Tel Aviv, Israel's commercial capital and most populous city, would mark a significant escalation of the conflict.

The armed wing of Islamic Jihad said it had fired an Iranian-built rocket at the Israeli city of Tel Aviv, AFP news agency reports.

"The Quds Brigades hit the occupied city of Tel Rabea (Tel Aviv) with a Fajr-5 rocket causing a large explosion to shake the city," the group said in a brief statement.

#11  The statement continued: “No matter how dark it may seem, no matter how alone and abandoned you may feel—know that tens of thousands of us in Anonymous are with you and working tirelessly around the clock to bring you every aid and assistance that we can.”

Hackers have attacked and taken down numerous Israeli websites since yesterday. According to the Express Tribune:

The group managed to deface a top Israeli security and surveillance website The account @Op_Israel tweeted:

“Hacked | Top Israel Security & Surveillance | Stop bombing #Gaza#OpIsrael#GazaUnderAttack#Anonymous”

In its second salvo, it managed to take down the website of the Israel Ministry of Defense, @AnonymousPress tweeted:

“ [Israeli Defence Forces] #Up & #DOWN | #OpIsrael |#Anonymous”

Another Twitter account linked to the group tweeted that defacing or taking down websites was not a priority for the group, rather it was ensuring that Palestinians on the ground had access to the Internet, cut off by Israel, so that communications with aid providers and rest of the world may continue unhampered.

“Taking down websites is not a priority at the moment. Ensuring internet access to get information out of Gaza is the #1 priority.”

Multiple accounts linked to the group or supporting the group tweeted online tutorials on how to stay connected to the internet when the government shuts down Internet service providers.

#8  and more from Debka:
It may be said that Israel’s Gaza operation did in fact start on Oct. 24 in Sudan with the attack on the Yarmouk complex manufacturing Iranian missiles near Khartoum. Former Military Intelligence chief Amos Yadlin Wednesday confirmed debkafile’s exclusive report that the factory had housed the emergency reserve stocks of the Palestinian Hamas and Jihad Islami in the Gaza Strip.
Its destruction contributed to their loss of infrastructure.
The tough part of the Israeli operation to eliminate the terrorist war peril hovering over southern Israel from the Gaza Strip is still to come. For now, Hamas is at a loss for a strategic answer to the IDF offensive – unless one is provided by Tehran or Hizballah coming to its rescue.

#7  Debka story at this link

The first three Palestinian missiles reached the Tel Aviv conurbation, Gush Dan, Thursday night, Nov. 15. shortly after a long-range missile exploded in Rishon Lezion southeast of Tel Aviv and sirens sounded in outlying towns of Holon, Ness Ziona, Gan Raveh and Beer Yacov. None report casualties or damage. Defense Minister Ehud Barak has ordered 30,000 army reservists drafted. The IDF spokesmen earlier reported units of the elite paratroop and Givati Brigades were mustering outside the Gaza Strip on the second day of Israel's counter-terror operation Pillar of Cloud.
