Israeli aviation has attacked a training camp and a military arsenal of Palestine in the Gaza Strip, in response to rocket attacks from the enclave, the army’s press service said.

The exchange occurred on the day of mass protests by Palestinians against the US decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

“In response to the rockets launched earlier today on Israel, the air force attacked the training camp of Hamas and the weapons storage in the Gaza Strip,” the press release said.

As a result of the air strike, ten people were injured, a representative of local medical services said.

The raid was the response to the launch of at least two missiles in the south of Israel, one of which was intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system.

The responsibility for the shelling, as a result of which no one was injured, was laid by the Israelis on the ruling Hamas movement in the enclave.
