As tensions rise, Gaza militants fire rockets into Israel

In another escalation after clashes at a sensitive holy site in Jerusalem, a series of deadly attacks within Israel, and military raids across the occupied West Bank, Palestinian militants fired a rocket into southern Israel on Monday.

According to the Israeli military, Israeli fighter jets struck a Hamas weapons manufacturing plant in southern Gaza early Tuesday. No injuries were reported.

Police said they were responding to Palestinian stone-throwing and that they were committed to ensuring that Jews, Christians and Muslims — whose major holidays are converging this year — could celebrate them safely in the Holy Land. Palestinians view the presence of Israeli police at the site as a provocation and said they used excessive force.
