Islamic Jihad on Thursday took responsibility for a Fajr missile fired toward Tel Aviv, according to Channel 2.

The group, based in the Gaza Strip, said: "We have widened the range of the battle to reach Tel Aviv and what is coming will be greater," it said in a statement.

The missile caused the emergency siren to ring in the city, and two booms were heard shortly thereafter. The Fajr missile is Iranian-made. Israel's Army Radio reported a missile strike.
