Updated at 8:02 a.m. ET: Israel started drafting 16,000 reserve troops on Friday as Egypts prime minister visited the Gaza Strip to show support for Palestinians amid a cross-border conflict with Hamas militants that risks spiraling into an all-out war.
But even as Prime Minister Hesham Kandil arrived for a three-hour visit in the coastal enclave, a temporary cease-fire declared by Israel at Egypts request collapsed after both sides accused the other of violating it.
Explosions were heard Friday in Tel Aviv, prompting the city to sound air raid sirens, NBCs Lawahez Jabari reported.
A police spokesman said one rocket fired toward the coastal city fell into the sea. "The rocket landed off the shores of Tel Aviv," the spokesman told Reuters.

It would seem they fire rockets like they fire AK 47’s......... point it around the corner of the building and pull the trigger
My Prayers and Support go to Israel!!!
GO _ Go _ Go !!!
Kick the living sh*t out of those Muzzies!!!
Reservists aren’t drafted, you media idiots, they are MOBILIZED.
I was mobilized in 2003 when we invaded Iraq. I got my draft number in 1969. Muy big differencia.
Cease fire????LOL! When did mudslimes ever not break a cease fire/peace treaty/hudna?
Video of prep strikes:
If Muslim Palestine is the heart of the Arab world, then the Arab body is a type-II diabetic subsisting on pork fat, Twinkies, Bud Lite and Marlboros.
It’s about time somebody took it to these Palestinian sucker-punchers where they live
Good shooting !
One never ceases to be amazed by how little journalists know (and by how much they think they know).
Israel Defense Forces videos, in English . . .
“This is the official YouTube page of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF).”
So, Mr. Reporter, which side actually violated it? Any idiot can report press releases. Journalists actually do their own work and get actual facts.
This story is useless, because NBC can't be bothered to actually find out what happened.
On the other hand, it's pretty clear the palistinians shot rockets into Israel. Again. So maybe NBC doesn't WANT to find the truth, because it would show their side was lying.
You can be sure to trust the accuracy of this article even when the reporter doesn’t understand the basic difference between drafting civilians and mobilizing trained reservists. No need to worry! /sarc off
