Israelis And Palestinians Clash After Trump's Jerusalem Decision

The Israeli military says it struck two alleged terrorist military posts in the Gaza Strip today after two rockets were launched at Israel from Gaza, but fell short.

The military says it blames Hamas — "a Palestinian Islamic political organization and militant group" — for all fire coming from the Gaza Strip. 

The violence comes the day after President Donald Trump said he recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
