Israel, Hamas trade deadly fire as confrontation escalates


GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) -- The Israeli city of Tel Aviv is under fire from a barrage of rockets launched from the Gaza Strip.

The volleys killed a 50-year-old woman who was the third Israeli citizen killed on Tuesday.

The attack set off air raid sirens across the city and closed the main international airport.

Hamas said it launched a total of 130 rockets, its most intense strike so far, in response to Israel's destruction of a high-rise building in Gaza earlier in the evening.

The sound of the outgoing rockets could be heard in Gaza.

As the rockets made their way up in the skies, mosques across Gaza blared with chants of "God is great," "victory to Islam" and "resistance."
