Sirens sounded and explosions could be heard in an Israeli city on Thursday evening, according to a report. An Israeli military spokesman said the incident was under investigation.

The Israel Defense Forces confirmed that at least two rockets were from the Gaza Strip toward Israel, triggering rocket sirens throughout central Israel.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called an emergency security meeting in the Kirya military headquarters following the event.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility in the enclave, where its dominant Hamas group has been engaged in talks with Egypt on a long-term ceasefire with Israel.

Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai told public television one of the Gaza rockets "apparently fell into the sea, the other hit somewhere but not in Tel Aviv".

According to the Al Mezan Center for Human Rights, 267 Palestinians have been killed in the Gaza Strip since March 30 a year ago.

Gaza is controlled by Hamas, an Islamic militant group that seeks Israel's destruction.
