A rocket from the Sinai Peninsula was fired toward Israel on Tuesday morning, on the second day of U.S. President Donald Trump's visit to the country.
The Israel Defense Forces confirmed that a rocket landed in Israel, but failed to cause any damages or casualties. The IDF added that a siren did not sound since the rocket was headed toward an open area.
Trump is currently on the second and final day of his trip to Israel. He is scheduled to meet Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in Bethlehem on Tuesday morning.
Trump is expected to be in Bethlehem for around an hour. Dozens of Palestinians were injured while rallying across the West Bank on Monday in support of 850 hunger-striking Palestinian prisoners currently held in Israeli detention.
