The moment an Israeli air strike hits Hamas' TV station

A bus hit by rocket fire from Gaza

Israeli jets have pounded Gaza Strip killing at least five Palestinians a day after a deadly covert Israeli operation in the besieged enclave drew rocket fire from Hamas-controlled territory.

The wounded soldier was rushed to Soroka Medical Center in Be'er Sheva.

Late on Sunday, Palestinians fired 17 rockets into southern Israel in response to the Israeli incursion and air strikes, which Hamas, the dominant Palestinian armed force in the Gaza Strip, said were meant to cover the retreat of a vehicle used by the Israeli troops.

The UN said it was working with Egypt to broker a halt in the violence. "We stand with Israel as it defends itself against these attacks". "Rockets must STOP, restraint must be shown by all!" the U.N. Mideast envoy's office tweeted.

Hamas says the Israelis launched an assassination operation two miles inside the Gaza Strip. The military said more than 70 militant targets in the Gaza Strip were hit, Naomi Zeveloff reports for NPR from Tel Aviv. Within hours, militants had launched rockets in response.

The airstrikes and rocket barrages resumed at dawn after almost two hours of calm.

A 19-year-old man was critically wounded in one explosion in southern Israel, Israeli medics said.

"We continue to strike and retaliate against the military targets belonging to terrorist organizations in Gaza, and as for our intentions we will enhance these efforts as needed", he told reporters.

Amid the airstrikes, the station went off the air briefly before resuming operations.

Fawzi Barhoum, a spokesman for Hamas, denounced the incident as a "cowardly Israeli attack".

Settlement Reached in Arizona Over Senate Vote Count in McSally-Sinema Race
A new batch of votes from the state's largest county gives her a lead of more than 20,000 votes out of 2 million counted. That huge amount has put pressure on a system that spends a lot of time already verifying the mail ballot signatures.

Hamas is also well aware that Abbas and Fatah are eager to see current efforts to achieve a truce in the Gaza Strip fail. The dead were claimed as members by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and Palestinian Islamic Jihad.

In all, 200 rockets were fired into Israel by mid-evening, the army said.

And so the Iron Dome's high interception success rate remained undiminished: out of about 400 rockets, the batteries intercepted 120 rockets that would've otherwise fallen in populated areas. Another rocket landed near a factory, and several homes were hit in southern towns.

In Gaza, Israeli missiles flattened four multi-floor buildings, including the TV station, and three other homes. The man apparently sustained the wounds in a mortar attack that struck a bus.

Oren Liebermann and Michael Schwartz reported from Sderot. "Everyone must step back from the brink", he said. Palestinian officials reported seven people killed, including a local Hamas commander identified as Nour Baraka.

Hamas called the operation an "assassination of a senior leader".

Hamas bolstered its checkpoints in the territory after the incursion. He reportedly had a work permit enabling him to be in Israel. The organizers cited "the ongoing security situation". The violence has thrown into doubt a series of informal understandings reached in recent days aimed at lowering tensions between Israel and Hamas. The blockade has devastated Gaza's economy.

Hamas, which is branded a terrorist group in the West, and Israel have fought three wars in the last decade and neither side appeared keen to precipitate another full-on conflict.

At least 231 Palestinians have since been killed by Israeli fire, the majority shot during protests and clashes, while others died in tank fire or air strikes.

Following the Palestinian escalation, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu cut short his visit to Paris as part of the centennial of the First World War's end.
