Gazans danced in the streets Saturday evening to celebrate a missile strike on Tel Aviv, ignoring the fact that the missiles failed to hit their targets and either exploded in uninhabited spaces or were shot down by the Iron Dome system.

Hamas television relayed the signal from Israeli television, in the hope that it would show carnage and damage caused by a salvo of missiles fired at Israel at about 9:00 Saturday evening. However, the viewers saw that the missiles failed to injure anyone. This did not keep them from celebrating victory.

Hamas has been reporting false information to its citizens throughout the campaign, claiming victories that never took place.
