Two rockets were fired from Gaza toward southern Israel.

The Israeli military said two rockets were launched toward Israel, but fell short of their intended destination and landed inside Gaza.

Israel has struck Gaza Thursday night with warplanes and tanks, according to the Israeli army.

No group in Gaza took immediate responsibility for the launch.

The only real downside is you'll have to install two apps to get the same functionality that's now present in one app. But as long as Direct is a part of Instagram , expanding the platform would get increasingly hard for the company.

The rockets came amid rising tensions in Gaza and the West Bank following U.S. President Trump's announcement that the U.S. recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

The ministry said that the reopening of the crossing will be dependent upon situational assessments.

"The security forces will continue acting to ensure the safety of civilians in the area", an IDF spokesman said.

Both Israelis and Palestinians lay claim to Jerusalem, although Israel has retained control over the city since 1967.
