Israel hit two "terror targets" in Gaza on Thursday after at least three rockets were fired towards Israeli territory earlier in the day, although most fell inside the Strip.

At least one tank shell was sacked into an area, east of the al-Maghazi refugee camp, in central Gaza, and was followed by many live rounds.

Residents in the Gaza Strip reported that there were no casualties from the strikes, according to Reuters.

Around two hours later the army said that another rocket, fired form the enclave's north, exploded in southern Israel.

It is worth mentioning that the Ministry of Health in the Gaza Strip said that Israeli soldiers shot and injured nine Palestinians, protesting near the border fence in the coastal region.

"When it's going to an open field, we try not to scare the public", the spokesperson said. The IDF confirmed the rockets did not reach Israeli soil and the Al-Tawheed Brigade, a Jihadist Salafi group, claimed responsibility for the rockets. "The IDF holds Hamas responsible for the hostile activity perpetrated against Israel from the Gaza Strip", an army statement said. The protesters also clashed with Israeli security forces firing tear gas and stun grenades, as well as rubber bullets and live ammunition.

In a Wednesday address from the White House, Trump defied worldwide warnings and insisted that after repeated failures to achieve peace a new approach was long overdue, describing his decision to recognize Jerusalem as the seat of Israel's government as merely based on reality.
