Abu Obeida, the spokesman for Hamas’ military wing, said the assault on Jerusalem was a response to what he called Israeli ‘crimes and aggression’ in the city.

‘This is a message the enemy has to understand well,’ he said.

This latest attack comes amid ongoing violent clashes in the city, which is marking the annual ‘Jerusalem Day’ today.

An Israeli national holiday, it commemorates its reunification and the establishment of Israeli control over the Old City in the aftermath of the Six-Day War in June 1967.
