Israelis welcomed the historic peace deals signed at the White House on Tuesday with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain.

The flags of the United States, Israel, UAE and Bahrain were projected on Jerusalem's Old City walls as leaders in Washington signed the deals.

Israeli President Reuven Rivlin thanked the Gulf State leaders for their courage and invited them to Jerusalem.

"I hope that many more Arab and Muslim countries follow your lead and that we see a new era of peace among nations, P2P, People to People, Peace to Peace. I hope as well that this spirit of cooperation will help us build a future of trust with our Palestinian neighbors," Rivlin said during a reception for diplomats.

Palestinians in Gaza acknowledged the peace accord a different way.

During a speech by the UAE's foreign minister, rockets fired from Gaza rained down on the southern Israeli cities of Ashkelon and Ashdod. One rocket fell in the commercial center of Ashdod, wounding two Israelis.

Overnight, terrorists launched another 13 rockets at Israel. Eight were intercepted by Iron Dome. In response, IDF jets hit Hamas military targets in Gaza.

Hamas said the peace deal was "working against national Arab security and fueling disagreements in the region."
