Two rockets strike Israeli settler communities near Gaza borders

Missiles from Gaza

Two missiles fired from Gaza hit Asheklon and Sedrot, south of Israel (territories occupied in 1948), on Thursday evening, hours after Trump declared Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

The Israeli army spokesman said two rockets unleashed from Gaza fell into Israeli settler communities near the borderland.

According to Hebrew news outlets, no injuries were reported in the rocket attack.

Sources from the Gaza enclave said missiles were fired at nearby Israeli settlements.

Tension has hit the climax in the occupied Palestinian territories after the U.S. President Donald Trump declared, in a Wednesday speech from Washington, Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and vowed to move the U.S. embassy to the city, in a move that is believed to fuel conflict and increase violence in the entire region.
