Israel Defense Forces said Tuesday a rocket was launched at southern Israel from the Gaza Strip, an attack that comes hours after a projectile fired from the Strip fell short of the border and landed inside Gaza.
No casualties were immediately reported. The incoming rocket alert sirens sounded in the Hof Ashkelon area, specifically in the communities of Netiv Ha'asara and Yad Mordechai, according to the Times of Israel.
At least 13 rockets have been fired from Gaza at Israel since Dec. 6 when President Donald Trump announced the U.S. would recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, according to Haaretz. The move angered Palestinians and has caused great tension in the Middle East.
