Clashes continue in the West Bank as Palestinians protest US President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Israel intercepted rockets fired from the Gaza Strip on Friday, the military said, in what appeared to be an attack that targeted a memorial ceremony for a slain Israeli soldier.

Two of the rockets were intercepted by the Iron Dome aerial defence system.

A spokesperson for the Sha'ar HaNegev municipality, bordering the Gaza Strip, stated that a third rocket hit one of the Gaza border communities. A spokesman for the Hamas-run health ministry said nobody was injured by the Israeli fire.

Rocket-warning sirens began shortly after midday in the Sha'ar Hanegev and Sdot Negev regions, alerting residents to take shelter, the Israeli army said on Twitter.

The rockets from Gaza were the first since December 18 and mark the most sustained fire from the Gaza Strip since the 2014 Israeli assault on Gaza.

Palestinians had launched three rockets on southern Israel.

The strikes came "in response to the rockets fired towards Israel" earlier on Friday, according to the statement. However, Israel said it held Hamas responsible for any hostility from Gaza and usually retaliates with attacks on Hamas positions.
