Israeli Military: Two Rockets Launched From Gaza Strip Did Not Reach Israel

Israeli Military: Two Rockets Launched From Gaza Strip Did Not Reach Israel”

Shortly afterwards, the army fired a tank shell into a Palestinian land, in Juhr ed-Deek area, southeast of Gaza city.

"The IDF sees the terror organization Hamas as responsible for events in the Gaza Strip".

A tank takes part in a training exercise near the Gaza Strip on December 6, 2016.

The rockets, which triggered the Code Red alert system in Ashkelon and other Israeli communities, landed in Gaza, the Israel Defense Forces spokesman said.

The ministry said that the reopening of the crossing will be dependent upon situational assessments. Security sources said no rockets fell in Israeli territory. The IDF confirmed the rockets did not reach Israeli soil and the Al-Tawheed Brigade, a Jihadist Salafi group, claimed responsibility for the rockets.

Sirens sounded in Israel at various locations on a day of heightened tension following demonstrations in the coastal enclave and the occupied West Bank as Palestinians protested at U.S. President Donald Trump's announcement on Wednesday that he was recognising Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

After the assault from Gaza, Israeli jets targeted military sites belonging to Hamas and Islamic Jihad. The protesters also clashed with Israeli security forces firing tear gas and stun grenades, as well as rubber bullets and live ammunition.

Last week, the Islamic Jihad launched a dozen mortar shells at an army post northeast of the Strip, causing no injuries but some damage to army equipment.

A lengthy list of US allies, regional powers and Palestinian politicians warned Trump against recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital in the lead-up to his announcement on Wednesday, saying that it would inflame tensions and provoke violence.

Trump's announcement, which was warmly received by Israel, overturns decades of precedent and runs counter to worldwide consensus, with no other country now taking the same stance.
