The AP reports:

Air raid sirens have just sounded in Jerusalem, signaling a possible rocket attack aimed at Israel's capital.

If verified, it would be the first time the holy city has ever been targeted by rockets fired by Gaza militants.

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.
