Clashes continue as Israel strikes Gaza militant posts after rockets fired

Israeli security forces brace for Palestinian ‘Day of Rage

Nevertheless, IDF tanks and warplanes bombed two Hamas military positions in Gaza in retaliation.

The Israel Defense Forces sent soldiers to inspect the area for signs of impact, but, finding none, determined that the two rockets had not reached Israeli territory, a spokesperson said. Palestinian Hamas militants take part in a protest against U.S. President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, in the northern Gaza Strip December 7, 2017.

It's not yet clear if there were any casualties in either attack.

The rocket fire followed several clashes between Palestinian demonstrators and Israeli forces along the Gaza border earlier in the day, in which at least nine Gazans were injured, according to the local health ministry.

Furthermore, after two rockets were fired from Gaza this evening, the IDF does not rule out the possibility that the Gaza Strip may join the violence. "Jerusalem is being kidnapped and ripped from us".

The directive given to IDF soldiers ahead of Friday's expected riots is to show as much restraint as possible until the situation becomes life-threatening.
