The southern Israeli city of Ashkelon remained on red alert on Tuesday morning. The Barzilai Medical Center there said it was treating 19 people wounded in strikes.
The strikes came after days of tension and clashes around the Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem, in which hundreds of Palestinians were injured. Credit: Israel Defense Forces via Storyful
