Israel bombs Gaza after being hit by rockets as Netanyahu signs deal

Sep 16, 2020 13:22 IST

Close on the heels of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's signing of normalisation deals with the UAE and Bahrain in Washington, Gaza struck Israel with rocket fire. At least two rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip, one of which was intercepted by Israel's Iron Dome anti-missile system and the other crashed into the southern coastal city of Ashdod. The Israel Defence Forces said their fighter jets responded with air strikes on military targets belonging to Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip. The IDF blamed Hamas and warned that it would 'bear the consequences for terror activity against Israeli civilians'.
