This Video Captures the Terror of Hamas Rockets

One Palestinian rocket hit a house, Israeli media said, showing footage of houses and cars pockmarked with shrapnel.

Palestinian militants fired dozens of rockets into Israel and the Israeli military carried out scores of air strikes as fighting near the Gaza-Israel border intensified overnight into Thursday.

In Gaza, one Hamas militant was killed in the air strikes, as was a Palestinian woman and her 18 month old child, Palestinian officials said.

Three Israelis were also injured from the strikes, none of which are believed to be serious.

"As of now, approximately 70 rocket launches were identified from the Gaza Strip at Israeli territory", the army said in a statement.

Meanwhile, Israeli firefighters battled two fires caused by gas balloons that exploded when the homes were hit by rocket fire.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Defence Minister Lieberman and IDF senior officials are now holding a situational assessment at the IDF HQ in Tel Aviv.

On Wednesday night IDF fighter jets attacked 12 Hamas targets along the Gaza Strip.

The escalation comes after the Hamas leadership convened for a rare meeting in Gaza on Friday.

United Nations and Egyptian-led efforts are under way to mediate a long-term truce between Israel and Hamas that would end a four-month surge of violence along the Israel-Gaza border.

Armed Israeli drones and F-16 warplanes have pounded various areas across the besieged Gaza Strip, killing at least a Palestinian and injuring several others.

Twenty-four of the slain protesters were minors, the ministry has said. The IDF later suggested the incident was a misunderstanding, as the tank returned fire in response to the shots fired as part of a ceremony of the al-Qassam Brigades, which were not deliberately aimed at Israeli soldiers, Haaretz reported.
