In Gaza, there was no immediate claim of responsibility.

Brig. Gen. Ronen Manelis, the Israeli army’s chief spokesman, said officials had no prior warning of the attack and were trying to determine who fired the rockets. Israel holds Gaza’s Hamas rulers responsible for all fire out of the territory.

Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai said he had ordered the city to open public air raid shelters as a protective measure. But he said there were no special instructions and encouraged residents to stick to their daily routines.

“Continue life as usual,” he told Channel 10 TV. “Be calm, but be alert.”

Donald Trump puts North Korea on notice over rocket site

Donald Trump puts North Korea on notice over rocket site Donald Trump said he would be “very disappointed” if North Korea was rebuilding a rocket launch facility, following reports that the regime was undertaking such activity at a site that had been partly destroyed last year.

In an unusual step that indicated Hamas was attempting to prevent further escalation, the Hamas Interior Ministry said the rocket fire went “against the national consensus” and promised to take action against the perpetuators.

Why North Korea’s restored rocket site isn’t cause for worry — yet.
“Little Rocket Man” may be living up to his Trump-given nickname. North Korea is rebuilding a satellite launch site it promised to entirely dismantle, and may have increased activity at a major missile factory — both actions that are likely meant to be warning signs to the United States and South Korea.
