JERUSALEM (JNS) – At least three rockets from the Gaza Strip were fired on southern Israel on Tuesday evening.
According to the Israel Defense Forces, two rockets were fired at Ashkelon and Ashdod, while a third was intercepted by the Iron Dome air-defense system.
Reports indicate that one rocket appears to have caused minor damage in Ashdod, while two men were lightly injured from shrapnel.
The rocket attack came as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was at the White House to sign normalization deals with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain.
Hamas, the Palestinian terror group that controls Gaza, condemned the normalization deals.
“The normalization agreements between Bahrain, the UAE and the Zionist entity are not worth the paper they were written on,” a Hamas spokesman said. “Our people insists on continuing its struggle until it secures the return of all its rights.”
