A four-year-old Palestinian child died in the Gaza Strip yesterday after succumbing to wounds he sustained during the Israeli offensive in 2014 when he was just one years old.

An Israeli army tank fired two shells on a military post in Gaza Strip with no injuries reported, Israeli and Palestinian sources reported Thursday.

Around two hours later the army said that another rocket, fired form the enclave's north, exploded in southern Israel. Clashes were also reported throughout Judea and Samaria as Palestinians rioted following United States President Donald Trump's declaration Wednesday night that the U.S. recognizes Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

The Israeli strikes were apparently in retaliation for rocket attacks from Gaza earlier in the day. The IDF confirmed the rockets did not reach Israeli soil and the Al-Tawheed Brigade, a Jihadist Salafi group, claimed responsibility for the rockets.

The Israeli rocket attacks reportedly landed in the Gaza Strip and on an empty field in southern Israel, injuring no one.

Demonstrators in cities including Jerusalem, Bethlehem and Ramallah rallied against Trump's shift in policy, some burning American flags and photos of the US president.
