Six people were injured in a rocket attack in the Israeli city of Ashkelon, the Israeli army said.
“As non-stop barrages of rockets continue to be fired toward southern Israel, an apartment building in Ashkelon was hit. 6 civilians were injured,” the Israel Defense Forces noted on Twitter.
Earlier, Hamas had said that Israel had until 6pm on Sunday to withdraw its troops from the Al-Aqsa Mosque and Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in East Jerusalem. Since then, about 150 rockets have been fired at Israel from the Gaza Strip, but dozens of them have been intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system.
