Hamas disinformation: Hamas rocket cut off electricity in Tel Aviv

Al-Risala, Hamas, newspaper  |
The day after Israel launched Operation Pillar of Defense targeting terrorist infrastructure in Gaza, the Hamas website Al-Risala published the following:
"Izz A-Din Al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas, officially announced that occupied Tal Al-Rabia ("Tal Al-Rabia" is the Palestinians' Arabic translation of Tel Aviv, to wrongly imply the existence of an Arab village of that name prior to Tel Aviv - Ed. ) was shelled with an improved Fajr-5 rocket on Thursday morning. Yesterday, Al-Qassam [Brigades] stated that Tal Al-Rabia was shelled with a locally made rocket. They emphasized in an announcement that what comes next will be worse. Hebrew (i.e., Israeli) media sources said that the rocket cut off electricity in 'Tel Aviv,' which is 70 kilometers from Gaza."
