An Islamist militant group called the Al-Tawheed Brigades took credit for firing the rockets at Israel.

The rockets came amid rising tensions in Gaza and the West Bank following U.S. President Trump's announcement that the U.S. recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Dozens of Palestinians in Gaza also staged violent protests along the security fence surrounding the coastal enclave, throwing rocks and rolling burning tires at the barrier and the Israeli soldiers on the other side. One person was treated for light injuries.
