  • IDF Retaliates with Tank Fire for Gaza Rockets; No Injuries

An Israeli siren smartphone app has warned that missiles were fired at southern Israel near the Gaza Strip on Thursday.

The Israeli military said two rockets were launched toward Israel, but fell short of their intended destination and landed inside Gaza.

Israeli sources claimed the army fired the missiles and shells "in response to a shell" that was reportedly fired from Gaza, causing no damage or injuries.

The IDF said the strikes on Gaza had been carried out with tank fire and from an aerial vehicle.

No group in Gaza took immediate responsibility for the launch.

Palestinians and Israeli troops had skirmished at the border earlier in the day.

Protests broke out in Gaza and the West Bank and Jerusalem after US President Donald Trump chose to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

The ministry said that the reopening of the crossing will be dependent upon situational assessments.

The army also fired several missiles and shells into Palestinian lands, in borer areas of the Gaza Strip.

Dozens of Palestinians in Gaza also staged violent protests along the security fence surrounding the coastal enclave, throwing rocks and rolling burning tires at the barrier and the Israeli soldiers on the other side.

The announcement was a major shift by Washington that overturns decades of United States foreign policy.
