"The Iron Dome air-defense system intercepted two rockets fired from the Gaza Strip", the newspaper reported.

Israeli tanks and jets launched attacks against the Gaza Strip on Friday in retaliation to Palestinian rocket fire against southern Israel.

A military spokesperson said in a statement that the rocket fell in one of the kibbutzim, small rural communities, in the Sha'ar Ha'negev Regional Council.

Hamas said there were no injuries in the strikes.

United States President Donald Trump's decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital has prompted worldwide criticism and sparked protests across the world. "We will use all means to defend Israel's sovereignty and security", Netanyahu said.

Palestinians have clashed with Israeli troops across the West Bank and along the Gaza border since Trump's announcement.

Palestinian health officials said dozens of protesters were injured on Friday, including some by live fire and rubber bullets.

Hamas facilities were targeted even though most of the recent rocket attacks appear to be launched by other Gaza-based terror groups, because Hamas, which maintains complete military and political control over Gaza, has refused to stop their attacks. When asked if the rockets had been fired to coincide with the commemoration an army official said, that it "absolutely could be", the case.
