In response to rocket fire that hit the southern Israeli city of Sderot on Friday night, the IDF says it struck four terror targets in Gaza.

According to an IDF statement IAF jets struck a Hamas military compound, a weapons warehouse and two other sites where the terrorist group manufacturers weapons.“The IDF views the shooting at Israeli communities severely, and Hamas is solely responsible for what happens in the Gaza Strip,” the statement added.

On Saturday morning, hours after the Israeli strikes, ‪teenagers in Khan younis in southern Gaza took to the streets to protest against US president Donald Trump’s declaration the US recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and in support of the highly contested city as the future capital of Palestine.

On social media, the teenagers are said to be students who are offering support to "occupied Jerusalem."
