After Rocket Strikes On Territory, Israel Retaliates With Attacks On Gaza Posts

A military spokesperson said the incoming rocket alert siren was not activated by the third launch - as it was by the first two - because the system detected that the projectile was not heading toward a populated area.

Palestinians and Israeli troops had skirmished at the border earlier in the day.

The army also fired several missiles and shells into Palestinian lands, in borer areas of the Gaza Strip. The move sparked global opposition and prompted Palestinian leaders to call for three days of protest.

Velayati vehemently censured Washington's move, deeming it "another stain of shame on U.S. policies" in advocating "violence, repression, undermining the oppressed people's rights, and destabilizing the region" aimed at preserving the interests of the Israeli regime. Although the decision's long-term effects on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and attempts at peace remain unclear, the announcement has caused an immediate wave of unrest.
