JNS.org – Israel has been hit with rocket fire from Hamas-ruled Gaza multiple times since Sunday morning, amid escalating tension over the Temple Mount holy site in Jerusalem.

A rocket fired from Hamas-controlled Gaza landed in Israel’s Eshkol Regional Council in the northwestern Negev on Sunday night. An IDF tank responded by attacking Hamas outposts in Gaza.

“As a terrorist organization, Hamas is the ruler of the Gaza Strip, and it is responsible for any attempt to harm the State of Israel,” the IDF said.

Earlier Sunday, a rocket from Gaza was fired at the Israeli coastal city of Ashkelon. The rocket exploded mid-air and caused no injuries or damage, according to the IDF.
