After a period of relative quiet, Hamas fired 10 rockets into Tel Aviv which were intercepted by Iron Dome.

At 4:50 pm, sirens were heard in Tel Aviv, Rishon LeZion, Holon, and Bat Yam.

According to Magen Dovid Adom, no injuries were reported.

In Rishon Lezion, a car was pummeled with schrapnel, but no one was hurt.

In the last few weeks, fewer missiles have been fired into Israel than have been in the beginning of the war, and there has been speculation that Hamas may be running out of missiles as the IDF continues to target Hamas strongholds and remove ammunition.

However, The New York Times reported that Hamas is recycling unexploded bombs and missiles from Israeli airstrikes and repurposing them for their own attacks.

“Unexploded ordnance is a main source of explosives for Hamas,” said Michael Cardash, an ex-deputy head of Israel’s National Police Bomb Disposal Division. “They are cutting open bombs from Israel, artillery bombs from Israel, and a lot of them are being used, of course… for their explosives and rockets.”

Israeli investigators found proof of this after inspecting in turn Hamas rockets shot at the Jewish state that failed to explode, and finding that its military-grade contents were “probably” from an old missile fired by the Israeli air force, said the report.

Other weapons found to contain Israeli explosives include anti-tank mines, thermobaric and rocket-propelled grenades, and improvised devices.

On October 7th, Hamas fired 5,000 missiles into Israel.

Since then the terror group has periodically been firing into various locations, in some instances, reaching Tel Aviv, Beit Shemesh, and Jerusalem.

Hezbollah has also been firing rockets into northern Israel since the beginning of the conflict.

In early January, the Lebanese terror group fired 40 rockets that set off alerts in 90 Israeli communities.

Although Hezbollah boasted of significant Israeli casualties and injuries, there were no reports of people killed or wounded in the attacks.

Many of the missiles were aimed at Mount Meron, which houses a military radar station in northern Israel.
