JERUSALEM, July 9 (Reuters) - Sirens were heard in Tel Aviv and across central Israel on Wednesday during what appeared to be a heavy rocket barrage fired from the Gaza Strip.

Israel said that Hamas Islamists in Gaza have dozens of long-range rockets capable of striking deeper into Israel than ever before. (Reporting by Ari Rabinovitch; Editing by Miral Fahmy)
