A video posted by a Facebook user in Israel on Friday appears to capture the moment bathers on a crowded beach in Tel Aviv learn of a Hamas rocket fired from the nearby Gaza Strip in their direction.
“It looks like a scene from the movie ‘Jaws,’” Tomer Ben Meir, the Facebook user who posted the video wrote as a caption.

The video also shows a puff in the sky which resembles a rocket interception from the Israeli Defense Forces’ sophisticated Iron Dome missile defense system.
Despite several temporary ceasefires between Israel and Hamas militants, fighting resumed at full force this week.
On Friday, a Hamas rocket reportedly killed a 4-year-old Israeli child, Nahal Oz, and a projectile struck a synagogue in Ashdod. On Thursday Israeli airstrikes took the lives of three senior Hamas terrorists.
