Netanyahu Vows 'Forceful' Response After Gaza Terror Rocket Strikes Israeli Home

It gutted most of the home, blowing out concrete walls and its stone facade, showering its yard and an adjacent street with rubble.

The Magen David Adom medical service said a woman and her three children, whose home in Beersheba was struck, were being treated for shock after they fled to their shelter upon being awaken by warning sirens shortly before 4 a.m.

The other rocket came down in the sea off Tel Aviv, 70 kilometres (45 miles) from Gaza, the army said.

The top Egyptian official was scheduled to visit Ramallah and the Gaza Strip on Thursday as part of Cairo's effort to avert a military confrontation between Israel and Hamas.

Hamas's goal is create as much confusion and violence on the border as possible to elicit a response from the Israeli Defense Forces that could provide the terror group with an opportunity to kidnap soldiers.

"We reject all irresponsible attempts that try to change the direction and sabotage the Egyptian efforts, including the overnight firing of the rocket", they said.

Lacazette hails Arsenal strike partnership with ‘brother’ Aubameyang
The victory took Arsenal up to fourth, just two points off the top spot which is occupied by current champions Manchester City. It helped, of course, that Fulham again played such an expansive style that is bound to give opponents chances.

IDF spokesman Lt. Col Jonathan Conricus explained that the mid-range rockets fired were at the disposal of only two groups in the Gaza Strip - Hamas and PIJ.

Israeli Regional Cooperation Minister Tzachi Hanegbi told Israel Radio there was evidence to back up the Hamas statement.

Israel's military said it struck armed training camps in Gaza and also targeted a squad about to launch a rocket.

A video footage was released, on Wednesday, showing an Israeli airstrike carried out in the northern besieged Gaza Strip, killing 25-year-old Naji Muhammad al-Zaanin. In Gaza, the Israeli strikes injured three people and killed a militant.

"So long as the missiles and the provocation continue on, there is no chance of easing the suffering of the people of Gaza", he said. Families crowded into a nearby hospital where the dead man's mother collapsed over his body.

Hamas leader Musa Abu Marzouk on Wednesday expressed "regret" over the cancellation of a planned visit to the Ramallah and the Gaza Strip by Abbas Kamel, head of Egypt's General Intelligence Force. Repeated attempts to reconcile Hamas and the West Bank-based administration of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas have failed, adding to the desperation fuelling the demonstrations.

Tottenham’s Harry Kane has brilliant record against West Ham
Spain were eliminated in the round of 16 after coach Julen Lopetegui left for Real Madrid on the eve of the tournament. The signs are good. "We are on the right track but there is a very long way to go".

The security delegation arrived in Gaza on Tuesday.

The latest flare-up comes after months of Palestinian protests along the Gaza border that have drawn a deadly response from Israeli troops.

About 200 Gazans have been killed by Israeli troops since the border protests began, according to Palestinian Health Ministry figures.

More than 2 million Palestinians are packed into the coastal enclave.

Both of Gaza's main Islamist groups Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) ostensibly distanced themselves from the rocket launches, as the warring neighbors have been actively seeking to reach a ceasefire agreement led by Egypt.

Israel and Hamas have fought three wars over the past decade and fighting has flared up on several occasions recently, though neither side appears to be interested in another full-blown war. The internationally-mediated peace process aimed at finding a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is all but moribund.
