Palestinian resistance movement Hamas has announced its launch of three M75 rockets and a Fajr 5 missile at Tel Aviv's Ben Gurion airport as part of the resistance retaliation for virtual massacre of near 900 Palestinians in the besieged Gaza Strip by Israeli military forces.

“At 11:45 am (0845 GMT), the Qassam Brigades bombarded Ben Gurion airport with three M75 rockets,” said a Friday statement by Hamas’ armed wing said.
An Israeli military spokeswoman confirmed rocket fire from Gaza, though she declined to specify how close it had come to Ben Gurion. "We can confirm two rockets were shot down over metropolitan Tel Aviv," she claimed as quoted in local press reports.

Zionist media outlets announced further announced on Wednesday that five rockets landed southern Tel Aviv, wounding nine settlers. "An Israeli helicopter moved a number of wounded soldiers to a hospital in Ashkelon," press reports said.
The resistance movement of Hamas also asserted on Friday that its forces killed "at least" 10 Zionist soldiers after targeting an Israeli infantry unit with explosives in eastern Beit Hanoun.

It said in a statement that its fighters had led an infantry unit of 15 Israeli soldiers into an ambush in the area.

The Israeli army also announced that one of its soldiers was killed in Gaza on Friday.
