Two people were injured from a rocket attack launched from the Gaza Strip, which came at the same time as Israel signed historic peace treaties with two Arab nations at the White House.
The Israel Defense Forces said that at least two rockets were fired from the Hamas-controlled strip Tuesday evening local time. One of the rockets was intercepted by the country’s Iron Dome missile defense system, but another rocket exploded in a street in Ashdod, a city of more than 200,000 people.
The street and nearby storefronts were damaged in the attack, according to the Times of Israel. One 62-year-old man reportedly had shrapnel wounds to his upper body, and a 28-year-old man had sustained injuries from broken glass. Medics said four others had anxiety attacks as a result of the rocket fire.
