It’s entirely unclear however whether the claims are true, in spite of this BBC report.
UPDATE: Not good.
JERUSALEM – Two rockets landed in open fields outside of Jerusalem after air raid sirens sounded in the city sending Israelis running for cover.
It is the first time the holy city has ever been targeted by rockets fired by Gaza militants. There does not appear to be any damage, or any reports of causalities.
Israeli media say the rocket fell north of Jerusalem, but authorities have not confirmed the reports. In Gaza, Hamas militants said they had attacked Jerusalem.

They include Hamas’s military leader Ahmed Jabari, killed by an Israeli air strike on Wednesday.
