Two rockets were fired from Gaza toward southern Israel.

An Israeli army tank fired two shells on a military post in Gaza Strip with no injuries reported, Israeli and Palestinian sources reported Thursday.

Palestinians and Israeli troops had skirmished at the border earlier in the day.

Later, the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) confirmed on Twitter that at least two missiles were launched from the Gaza Strip, but did not reach the country. "It is an unmasked support to occupation, oppression and injustice", Haniyya added, "Jerusalem is ours, there is no West or East; it is the united Arab and Islamic capital of the state of Palestine, a state from the river to the sea".

Gutierrez also revealed how he got a text from his son saying he can't leave the school as they are going on lockdown. The shots were reportedly fired on the Eustis Hunt Road side of the school, and only about ten yards off campus.


Around two hours later the army said that another rocket, fired form the enclave's north, exploded in southern Israel.

There was no initial claim of responsibility from any militant groups in the Gaza Strip for the launchings. The move sparked global opposition and prompted Palestinian leaders to call for three days of protest. Four were injured with one injury in the stomach described as critical.

A lengthy list of US allies, regional powers and Palestinian politicians warned Trump against recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital in the lead-up to his announcement on Wednesday, saying that it would inflame tensions and provoke violence.
