GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- Hamas' armed wing says it fired a long-range missile at Tel Aviv in retaliation for the killing of 11 civilians in Gaza City on Sunday.

The al-Qassam Brigades said fighters sent a Fajr missile to Tel Aviv, Israel's biggest city, and shelled an Israeli war ship and military bases in response to what it called the massacre of the al-Dalou family.

An Israeli missile leveled the al-Dalou family home in the Sheikh Radwan neighborhood, killing 11 people including four women and four children on Sunday afternoon.

An Israeli police spokesman said Israel's "Iron Dome" interceptor system shot down two incoming rockets from the Gaza Strip on Sunday night and no casualties or damage was reported.

It was the second strike on Israel's commercial capital on Sunday. In the earlier attack, one person was hurt by falling debris from a rocket that was intercepted south of the city.

Israel has killed 24 people on Sunday, including seven children, in the bloodiest day in Gaza since Operation Cast Lead concluded in January 2009.

Some 72 Palestinians have been killed since Wednesday.

The truth hurts: "The attacks against civilians by Palestinian armed groups are widespread, systematic and in pursuit of an explicit policy to attack civilians. They therefore constitute crimes against humanity under international law. They may also constitute war crimes..."

#1 Jesus Brian. Read the story. Eleven people inc. four women and four children crushed to death in their house in one of those "surgical" strikes which painstakingly avoid hurting civilians (cf. someone "hurt by falling debris from a rocket that was intercepted south of the city..."). Your sudden concern for the law and what constitutes "crimes against humanity" is laudable but look what YOUR government is doing in YOUR backyard. Respond to me wth SOME genuine sense of the horror of all this

(contd.) and of Israel's part in it without the usual "clever" point scoring. There MUST be a decent guy somewhere in there underneath all that crap. Jesus.

Brian Cohen - are you saying that Israel is not trying to kill as many people in Gaza as possible including civilians? Get real! No-one believes you any more. Israel once (long ago) held the high moral ground but has lost it. Through their own actions. In their bid for more land. Wanting the whole of Palestine, free on those pesky Palestinians. An Israeli talking about "war crimes"??? Well, Israel knows all about war crimes, doesn't it. You should read more Brian.

Brian, Israel is entitled to defend itself. Of course. But so is Gaza. And the point of this whole disgusting episode is that it started by Israel's state sponsored terrorist killing. Israel has by far the greater fire power, with its armed ships, helicopter gunships, bombers, and, most disgusting and cowardly of all, drones, all against rockets. If Israel was only firing rockets or if Gaza had all those other weapons then it might be an even battle. But it isn't, and even you must see that.
