ISRAEL RESPONDS TO PALESTINIAN ROCKET STRIKES
ISRAEL LAUNCHED FRESH AIRSTRIKES IN THE GAZA STRIP IN RESPONSE TO ROCKET FIRE FROM THE ENCLAVE AND THE PALESTINIAN ISLAMIST HAMAS GROUP SAID TWO OF ITS GUNMEN WERE KILLED.
Militants fired at least three rockets toward Israeli towns from the Hamas-controlled strip on Friday, which was declared a "day of rage" by Palestinian factions protesting U.S. President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
"IAF (Israeli Air Force) aircraft targeted four facilities belonging to the Hamas terror organization in the Gaza Strip: Two weapons manufacturing sites, a weapons warehouse, a military compound," the Israeli military said in a statement.
A Hamas source confirmed the two men killed in the strikes belonged to the group which urged Palestinians to keep up confrontation with Israeli forces.
Two more Palestinians were killed in clashes with Israeli troops on the Gaza border on Friday and scores more were wounded there and in the occupied West Bank during the protests.
Across the Arab and Muslim worlds, thousands more protesters took to the streets on the Muslim holy day to express solidarity with the Palestinians and outrage at Trump's reversal of decades of U.S. policy.Published: by Radio NewsHub
