Earlier, rocket warning alarms went on in the southern Israel cities of Ashkelon and Ashdod, close to the border with Gaza.
The attack followed the US-brokered Abraham Accords signed by the UAE and Bahrain at the White House hours earlier, establishing diplomatic ties with Israel. The agreements were met negatively in Palestine, which Israel refuses to recognise as an independent political entity.
The UAE and Bahrain became the third and the fourth states to recognise Israel after Egypt and Jordan did so in 1979 and 1994, respectively.
