Explosions were heard near the Gush Dan region of the city.

The press service of the Israel Defence Forces confirmed that the sirens had sounded for the first time since summer 2014. One was reported to have been intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system while another one is said to have fallen in open territory.

The military said two rockets were launched from the Gaza Strip and it would provide further details later.

Two sirens blared as loud explosions boomed in Tel Aviv, the Jerusalem Post reported.

It wasn't all negativity, though, with some fans taking to Twitter in order to suggest they have been won over by the new trailer. The studio also has a live-action Lion King and Mulan in development, as well as a sequel to the Jungle Book.

Sources in the Gaza Strip said that Hamas ordered all its men to abandon their bases and offices in anticipation of an Israeli retaliatory attack.

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". The officials arrived in the Gaza Strip earlier in the day for talks with Hamas leaders on a possible truce with Israel.

Tensions have been high for the past year along the Israel-Gaza frontier since Palestinians began violent protests near Israel's border fence that have often drawn a lethal response from the Israeli military.
