Two rockets fired on Israel land in Gaza

MOHAMMED ABED

An Israeli father escorting the hike, one of two carrying a gun, fired into the crowd to break it up, killing a Palestinian farmer.

The launches set off incoming rocket alert sirens shortly after 6 p.m., in the Hof Ashkelon and Sha'ar Hanegev regions, northeast of the Gaza Strip. Clashes were also reported throughout Judea and Samaria as Palestinians rioted following United States President Donald Trump's declaration Wednesday night that the USA recognizes Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Hamas' leader Ismail Haniyeh told Palestinians to rise against Israel, saying Trump's decision declares war against Palestine.

In Wednesday night's raid, Israeli security forces also apprehended several Palestinians suspected of inciting terrorism and brought them in for questioning with the Israel Police. In the blast and its aftermath, 12 members of the terrorist group were killed, along with two Hamas operatives.

Hundreds of Palestinians protested on Thursday by burning posters of Trump, Israel's prime minister and the Israel and US flags.

The IDF held Hamas responsible for the hostile activity perpetrated against Israel from the Gaza Strip, said the statement, Xinhua reported.

Trump's announcement overturns decades of precedent and runs counter to global consensus, with no other country now taking the same stance. "Jerusalem is being kidnapped and ripped from us".

While Israel has always considered Jerusalem its capital, with the prime minister's office and parliament building located there, countries have avoided recognizing it as such to prevent damaging hopes for a two-state solution.
