The military wing of Hamas, known as the Al-Qassam Brigades, declared that it launched a significant missile attack on Tel Aviv in response to what they termed as the Israeli Occupation's violence against civilians.

Sirens blared in Kfar Saba, Herzliya, and Raanana, areas north of Tel Aviv, for the first time in months, extending as far as 120 km from Rafah.

Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) claimed to have intercepted at least 10 rockets, with reports from Hebrew Channel 12 indicating that the barrage originated from Rafah in southern Gaza. Hebrew media stated that a settler was injured when a missile struck a vehicle in Herzliya near Tel Aviv.

This development coincides with a planned meeting of the Israeli Occupation War Cabinet to discuss an agreement for the release of detainees held by Palestinian resistance forces in Gaza. An Israeli Occupation official confirmed the meeting, scheduled for Sunday evening in Jerusalem.
