Gaza clashes 'cannot continue': Israeli defence minister

Gaza clashes 'cannot continue': Israeli defence minister

Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman ordered the closure of both of Israel's border crossings with Gaza following the rocket attack.

The previous rocket, which struck a field north of Beersheba on August 9, came as Palestinians fired dozens of projectiles at Israeli communities along the Gaza border.

Usually, Israeli civilians are encouraged to return to their routine as quickly as possible, but on Wednesday, school was canceled in Beersheva and areas near the Gaza Strip.

Palestinian protestors place their national flag on a metal structure during a demonstration on the beach near the maritime border with Israel, in the northern Gaza Strip, on October 8, 2018.

A member of Palestinian security forces loyal to Hamas inspects the scene of an Israeli air strike in the southern Gaza Strip October 17, 2018.

IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eisenkot, who cut short a trip to the United States due to the fresh violence in Gaza, went directly to the security cabinet session after landing in Israel, Hadashot TV news reported.

A top Israeli general said Wednesday the military hit Hamas hard and would step up attacks in the future, as top political leaders and army brass met in Jerusalem to discuss how to deal with a surge in fighting with Gaza.

The Hamas group has organised months of often violent border protests, with at least 205 Palestinians and one Israeli killed since March 30.

"Hamas isn't trying to achieve any truce with Israel".

Muguruza stunned by Wang's recovery in Shanghai
Pliskova rallied to win the next three games, but Garcia held serve on her second opportunity and finished it off with an ace. It is the first semifinal the two-time Grand Slam champion has reached since making the last four of the French Open in May.

He says it's "the only way to lower the level of violence to zero or close to zero". But he said Israeli policy dictated an "immediate and forceful retaliation" against Hamas because the groups controls Gaza.

The targets include a tunnel, two digging sites, a weapons manufacturing site, a naval tunnel, and more.

Lieberman's comments followed calls by far-right Education Minister Naftali Bennett for a harsh response against any Palestinians who cross the Israeli fence surrounding Gaza during regular protests on the boundary.

It had seen thousands of litres (gallons) of fuel paid for by Qatar delivered to generate desperately needed power in the impoverished territory.

Additionally, an investigation by the IDF found that Palestinian protesters had "detonated a large explosive device" near a border fence.

Overnight, Israeli fighter jets began attacking targets in the Gaza Strip in response to rocket fire from the territory.

"Hamas has apparently not understood the message - if these attacks do not stop, they will be stopped in another way, in the form of very, very strong blows", Netanyahu was quoted as saying. "If Hamas is intelligent, it will cease fire and violence now". Egypt also restricts movement in and out of Gaza on its border.

Hamas clearly misinterpreted Israel's willingness to improve the humanitarian situation in Gaza and apparently thought it was the beginning of Israel's capitulation.
