Explosions seen above Gaza after Biden's Israel visit

STORY: "In response to the rockets fired from Gaza at Israel tonight, we targeted one of Hamas' most significant rocket production sites in Gaza. This strike will significantly impede Hamas' force-building capabilities," Israel Defense Forces wrote on Twitter.

Sirens warning of incoming rocket fire sounded in the southern Israeli city of Ashkelon and the area near Gaza earlier on Saturday, the Israeli military said.

A military statement said two rockets were fired from Gaza toward Israel, adding that one was intercepted and the other landed in an open area.

No group in the blockaded Gaza Strip, which is ruled by the Islamist militant Hamas movement, claimed responsibility for the launches.

The rocket fire came hours after U.S. President Joe Biden flew from Israel to Saudi Arabia in his first Middle East trip as president.
