Iron Dome Intercepts Rocket Fired from Gaza

On Tuesday, Iron Dome batteries intercepted rockets fired from the Gaza Strip toward Ashkelon. While no groups claimed responsibility for the rocket launch, Israeli forces attacked Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip in response. Tension between Hamas and Israeli forces have intensified within the past week, following protests in response to President Trump’s announcement recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
