Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip on Monday fired five Qassam rockets at Israel, just four days after the rival Hamas and Fatah factions agreed to form a national unity government. The rockets landed in open areas in the western Negev, causing neither casualties nor damage.

Violent protests over Israel's construction work at the Mugrabi gate continued throughout the West Bank Sunday.

According to Israel Defense Forces information, 61 rock-throwing incidents - 28 targeting Israeli civilian vehicles, 27 involving IDF vehicles, and six involving work on the West Bank security fence - were registered between Thursday afternoon and Sunday morning.

In addition, the IDF registered 28 incidents of Molotov cocktail attacks: Two on civilian targets and 22 targeting IDF troops.

An Israeli woman sustained light injuries after she was hit by a rock in the village of Hawara, south of Nablus.

IDF sources said the hubs of the protests were the Kalandia checkpoint, the village of Beit Omar, and Hebron.

Israeli security forces have remained on high alert for fear of escalation in the violence.
