TEL AVIV, Israel (AP) — Israeli officials say Palestinian militants have fired a rocket toward the metropolis of Tel Aviv for a third straight day.

Air raid sirens have sounded throughout the city, and explosions were heard on Saturday.

There were no immediate details on where the projectile landed.

In Gaza, Hamas militants said they had launched an Iranian-made Fajr 5 rocket.
