Baghdad / Sky Press
The Israeli army confirmed on Sunday that it had directed an air strike on Hamas positions in the Gaza Strip.
"The army launched an air strike on Hamas positions in the Gaza Strip," an Israeli army spokesman said in a tweet to his newspaper, adding that the strike came in response to the firing of rockets from there on the "Hanegov" Negiv, "last Friday.
"The strike targeted a Hamas monitoring center in the southern Gaza Strip," he said.
Friday's clashes took place in the occupied West Bank and the Gaza Strip as protests continued against the US decision to declare Jerusalem the capital of Israel.
Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip and Islamic Jihad, called for a "day of anger" on Friday, as was the case last Friday after the US decision on Jerusalem.
