ABC News(TEL AVIV, Israel) — Hamas leaders issued a warning Saturday night, giving an hour notice that it would release “fierce missile strikes” on Tel Aviv.

With a statement posted on its website, the alert marks the first time the group announced timing for its slew of attacks.

Hamas sent three rockets over the city just after 9 p.m., according to Israel Defense Forces. Iron Dome defense tracked rockets over the center of Tel Aviv to intercept the missiles.

Military officials say the Israeli Air Force targeted the rocket launcher in the recent attack to Beit Lahiya in the northern Gaza Strip.
