At least six people were wounded in the southern part of the occupied lands by rocket fire from Gaza on Tuesday in an attack that coincided with the gathering of some Arab, American and Zionist officials in the White House to sign the anti-Palestinian agreement.

Iran Press/Middle East: Palestinian media reported on Tuesday evening that the resistance groups in the Gaza Strip fired several rockets at the Zionist settlements in Ashkelon and Ashdod, Al-Alam reported.

Palestinian President Mahmud Abbas, meanwhile, warned that the deals would "not achieve peace in the region" until the US and Israel acknowledged his people's right to a state.

"Peace, security and stability will not be achieved in the region until the Israeli occupation ends," he said, according to AFP.

Witnesses in Gaza said at least two rockets were fired from the north of the coastal enclave into the occupied territories.

The attack came as the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain signed the accords establishing diplomatic relations with the Zionist regime.

Palestinians protested on the streets Tuesday against the deals.

Scores of people also took part in a demonstration in Ramallah, home of the Palestinian Authority (PA), which Abbas heads.

Banners were displayed at the protests, reading "Treason" "No to normalization with the occupier", and "The agreements of shame.”

Abbas warned that "attempts to bypass the Palestinian people and its leadership, represented by the Palestine Liberation Organisation, will have dangerous consequences for which the United States and Israel will be responsible.”

In Gaza, protesters trampled on and set fire to placards bearing images of the leaders of Israel, the UAE, and Bahrain.

Hamas has joined the PA in condemning the UAE and Bahraini accords as a "betrayal" of the Palestinian cause.
