Three rockets fired from Gaza at Israel, two intercepted by Iron Dome

Whilst a number of rockets have been intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system, several have landed in the populated areas of Sderot and south of Ashkelon.

One of the projectiles landed and caused minor damage but no injuries around the communities of Sha'ar HaNegev and Sdot Negev, where the red alert sirens were sounded, Sha'ar regional council reported.

Israeli tanks and aircraft on Friday hit the Gaza Strip after rocket fired from the Palestinian enclave targeted a southern community.

Israel's military said about 2,000 Palestinians rolled burning tires and threw rocks at soldiers stationed near the Gaza border and troops fired "selectively against four main instigators".

The Israeli army said it is now investigating the incident.

Former Steelers DE Harrison signs with Patriots
Harrison's limited playing time was a given since the Steelers preferred to use younger pass rushers in T.J. James Harrison is no longer the odd man out or the oldest man in the locker room.

The rockets from Gaza were the first since December 18 and mark the most sustained fire from the Gaza Strip since the 2014 Israeli assault on Gaza.

United States President Donald Trump's decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital has prompted global criticism and sparked protests across the world.

The move drew global condemnation and prompted a series of protests in Gaza and elsewhere.

At least 500 people have been arrested, including Fatah leaders in Jerusalem.
