    Civil defence sirens went off twice on Saturday in Tel Aviv and its suburbs, as well as in the city of Ashod and areas next to the Gaza Strip.

    Footage showing people fleeing a Tel Aviv beach has emerged online after rocket sirens went off in the Israeli capital on Saturday.

    The Gaza conflict escalated on Monday evening, with over 2,200 rockets launched by Hamas from the Palestinian territory into Israel. The Israeli military has retaliated, with hundreds of strikes killing scores of civilians, including many children.
