Air raid sirens wail in Jerusalem

JERUSALEM — Air raid sirens have wailed across the city of Jerusalem in an apparent rocket attack by Gaza militants.

Two faint booms could be heard from downtown Jerusalem shortly after the sirens went off late Tuesday. It was not clear whether it was a rocket strike, or whether an incoming projectile had been intercepted.

Jerusalem is about 50 miles, or 80 kilometers, north of Gaza.

There were no immediate reports of casualties or damage.
