A number of rockets have been fired from Gaza in the direction of Israeli cities through the UAE-Bahrain peace deal signing in Washington. Israeli anti-aircraft defenses have been activated, and at the least two Israelis had been reportedly injured.
Rocket warning sirens had been activated in southern Israeli cities late on Tuesday, because the ceremony to signal a US-brokered deal between Tel Aviv, Bahrain, and the UAE was underway in Washington.
The sirens had been sounded within the coastal cities of Ashkelon and Ashdod. No less than two folks had been injured by rocket fragments at a shopping center in Ashdod, in accordance with native media stories.
Footage from the scene reveals broken autos and shattered glass on the website of the rocket influence.
