    (ANSAmed) - TEL AVIV, MARCH 15 - After two rockets shot at Tel Aviv, ''more than 100 Hamas terrorist targets were hit'' in Gaza over the night between Thursday and Friday in Gaza by Israeli warplanes, a military spokesman said. He added that some of the targets were the Hamas headquarters in the southern part of the Gaza Strip, a naval position that served for weapons manufacturing, and an underground workshop used to build rockets. The Gaza healthcare ministry has not yet released any statement on casualties from the attacks.

    Both Hamas and the Islamic Jihad withdrew their men from many bases after the rocket attacks, as they expected retaliation from Israel, local media say. The military spokesman said that Hamas had been behind the rocket attacks.

    The announcement came over the night after an emergency meeting chaired by Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu.

    Neither Hamas nor the Islamic Jihad or other factions in Gaza have claimed responsibility for the rocket attacks.

    Other rockets were shot during the night at the Israeli town of Sderot, near the Gaza Strip. (ANSAmed).
