Earlier tonight, rocket sirens were heard in the Hof Ashkelon and Sha'ar HaNegev regional councils, as well as the city of Sdreot, when two rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip toward Israel.

They added that two other shells were also fired from Gaza, but landed inside the Gaza Strip.

According to CNN, a fresh wave of violence has erupted following United States President Donald Trump' decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. On Thursday, Hamas terror group leader Ismail Haniyeh called for a new Palestinian intifada, or uprising.

Last week, the Islamic Jihad launched a dozen mortar shells at an army post northeast of the Strip, causing no injuries but some damage to army equipment.

It is worth mentioning that the Ministry of Health in the Gaza Strip said that Israeli soldiers shot and injured nine Palestinians, protesting near the border fence in the coastal region.

On Wednesday, Trump announced the relocation of the US embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem - a move which drew numerous negative reactions from Muslim communities around the world.

Demonstrators in cities including Jerusalem, Bethlehem and Ramallah rallied against Trump's shift in policy, some burning American flags and photos of the USA president.

Israel has occupied East Jerusalem since the 1967 Middle East war.
