The Israeli military said Thursday it struck targets in the Gaza Strip in response to projectiles fired at Israel.
It said a projectile exploded in southern Israel, in addition to two earlier ones launched from Gaza which fell short and landed in the Palestinian territory.
The Israeli army said a tank and aircraft struck two military posts in Gaza, adding that it holds Hamas responsible for any fire emanating from the Gaza Strip.
The border violence comes a day after U.S. President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital. Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh called for Palestinians to launch a new uprising against Israel in the wake of Trump's declaration.
