Palestine's Islamic Jihad on Friday announced that it had fired more than 100 rockets from the Gaza Strip at Israeli cities in response to Israel's assassination of one of its top leaders.

"In response to the crime of assassinating Al-Jabari and his comrades, Saraya al-Quds bombed Tel Aviv and other cities with more than 100 missiles," said the group's armed wing.

It said the cities of Tel Aviv, Ashkelon, Beersheba, and Sderot were targeted.

The death toll of Palestinians killed by Israeli forces since the start of their offensive on the Gaza Strip has risen to 10, according to the Palestinian Health Ministry. At least 55 others have been injured.

Tensions have been running high since last week after Israeli forces kidnapped a leader from Islamic Jihad in the West Bank.
