Bomb disposal units were deployed in southern Israel late on Tuesday after Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip fired two rockets into Israel.  The Israeli military said one rocket was intercepted by air defenses. the Israeli emergency service said it treated two people for minor injuries from broken glass.

The firing of the rockets was apparently timed to coincide with the signing of recognition agreements between Israel, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain at the White House. The Palestinians are opposed to the agreements with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, viewing them as a betrayal of their cause by the Arab countries, which agreed to recognize Israel without securing territorial concessions.
