At least 25 Palestinians, including six children, have been wounded in an Israeli air raid on the besieged Gaza Strip, according to the Palestinian health ministry.
One was reportedly intercepted by Israel’s US-built Iron Dome missile defence system over the southern Israeli city of Sderot, while the second did not reach Israeli territory.
A third rocket, allegedly fired from Gaza, exploded in Sderot, according to the Israeli daily Haaretz. No casualties were reported.
Palestinian political party Hamas tweeted that Israeli “jet planes target parts of north Gaza”.
At least one Palestinian has been killed by Israeli fire in the protests and nearly 800 more have been injured.
Images circulating on Twitter appeared to show some of the victims of Friday’s bombing in Gaza, including an infant and an older man.
Al Jazeera was unable to confirm if any group in Gaza had claimed responsibility for the rockets.
“We call on stopping this decision fully because this will usher in the beginning of a time of terrible transformations, not just on the Palestinian level but on the region as a whole,” Haniya said.
