Two rockets, which were launched on Thursday from the Gaza Strip in the direction of Israel, fell short in the Palestinian territory, the Israeli military said.
The launches triggered air attack alarm systems in the south of the Jewish state. No militant group in the region has yet claimed responsibility for the missile launches.
The incident occured against the background of mass Palestinian protests in all settlements of the West Bank of the Jordan River in response to the US move to designate Jerusalem as the Israeli capital. Local services told Sputnik that around 50 Palestinians were injured in clashes with Israeli security forces.
