Israel says 2 rockets launched from Jenin in West Bank, no reported injuries


Jerusalem (Reuters) – The Israeli military said two rockets were launched from the West Bank city of Jenin on Monday and landed within Palestinian territory, causing no reported injuries.

“The rockets did not pose a threat to communities in the area,” a military statement said.
