Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip fired two rockets at Israel late Friday, the army said, after a day of clashes at Jerusalem’s flashpoint al-Aqsa Mosque compound.

“A rocket hit an open field near the border fence with northern Gaza. Another rocket hit inside the [Gaza] Strip,” the Israeli army said on Twitter, noting air raid sirens were not activated in the latest attack.

On Tuesday, Israel carried out strikes in the Gaza Strip after a rocket was fired from the Palestinian enclave into Israel, witnesses and its ruling Hamas movement said.
