Hamas fired rockets on Jerusalem, Israel strikes back; fire broke out at Al Aqsa
Hamas has claimed responsibility for the rocket attack. No casualties or damage were reported.
The Israeli parliament was evacuated after the rocketing, and along the border with Gaza, Israel strengthened its forces.
After that, a representative of the military wing of Hamas, Abu Obeid, spoke out, confirming that the rocket attacks were a response to, as he put it, "the crime and aggression" that Israel is committing in Jerusalem, the AP reported.
"This is a message that the enemy must understand well," Obeid said, threatening new attacks if Israel again orders its security forces to invade the Al-Aqsa Mosque or carry out the expulsion of Palestinians living in East Jeursalem.

Shortly after the sirens from the Gaza Strip were activated in Jerusalem, a rocket launch was heard, and then another one.
According to the Israeli army, one rocket was intercepted, while the other hit a civilian vehicle in the south, and on that occasion, one person was slightly injured.
Meanwhile, as reported by Reuters, European Commissioner for Foreign Affairs Josep Borrell called today for peace to be established in East Jerusalem after more than 300 Palestinians were injured in clashes with Israeli police over the Al Aqsa Mosque.
