IDF strikes Hamas observation post in response to rocket fire

Earlier on Friday, Israeli air forces struck with missiles a target that belongs to militants in northern Gaza Strip, with no injuries reported, according to Palestinian security sources in Gaza.

Israeli military planes today attacked several towns in the north of the Gaza Strip, allegedly after a rocket from that area hit Israeli territory.

There were no immediate reports of casualties or damage.

Mohammed Abu Jarad, a local resident, told AFP how he and his family had been forced to flee their home after two missiles hit.

This follows a rocket that was sacked from the Gaza Strip toward Israel on Thursday evening, not causing damage. No one claimed responsibility for the rocket attack.

The Ministry of Health said in a statement that 13 Palestinians were admitted to the ministry's hospitals in the West Bank on Friday, following clashes with Israeli forces in many locations across the occupied West Bank.

On Thursday, the Palestinian Authority's ruling Fatah faction blasted the Trump administration's decision to sanction Haniyeh, and called for "national unity" between the Palestine Liberation Organization and the Gaza-based Hamas terror group.

Jerusalem is a key issue in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and many Arab leaders and others have reacted in anger.

Hamas issued a statement in which it said that the American decision was a unsafe development that comes "in violation of the global laws, which gave the Palestinian people the right to defend themselves, resist the occupation and choose their leadership".
