Rocket fire, IDF reprisals persist into the night; Hamas says 20 killed in attacks; Tel Aviv and surrounding cities open shelters after over 150 projectiles fired from Strip

A Hamas spokesman says the terror group is suspending plans for a large-scale attack as Israel has withdrawn its forces from the Temple Mount compound.

Hamas had given Israel until 2 a.m to do so.

It was the second ultimatum delivered by Hamas. After the first, they fired 6 rockets at Jerusalem, prompting a harsh response from the IDF.

There is no immediate confirmation from Israel that police have left the compound, or if it was in response to the Hamas demands.

Rocket fire continues to target Israeli communities near the Strip.
