Israeli fighter jets struck targets in the Gaza Strip early on Wednesday after a rocket was sacked and hit a home in southern Israel.

One 25-year-old Palestinian militant was killed and three others were wounded in the Gaza strikes.

"In response to the rockets fired from #Gaza at #Israel overnight, IDF fighter jets started to attack terrorist targets in the Gaza Strip", the Israel Defense Forces wrote on Twitter, two hours after sharing news of the rocket attack and saying "we will defend Israeli civilians".

The rocket hit a two-story house in Beersheba before dawn, the Israeli military said.

The rocket attack on Beersheba was the first in months and the first that hit an Israeli home there since the 2014 summer war between Israel and Gaza's militant Hamas rulers.

Israel's defence minister said on Tuesday that months of violent Palestinian protests on the Gaza border can not be allowed to go on, urging cabinet colleagues to back tougher measures.

A week ago, Israel also announced it was willing to to issue entry permits for 5,000 merchants from Gaza for business purposes, while Qatar would be allowed to pay the salaries of civil servants in Gaza and to finance humanitarian projects in the poverty-stricken enclave.

The Magen David Adom rescue service said a mother and three children in the home were being treated for shock symptoms.

Another rocket launched from Gaza and aimed at central Israel fell into the Mediterranean Sea, the military said.

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.

It has intensified the protests in recent weeks as Egyptian-mediated cease-fire efforts have faltered.

The rocket attack comes as an Egyptian delegation arrived in Gaza on Tuesday led by Ahmed Abdul Khaleq, an intelligence official in charge of the Palestinian file.

Last week, some 14,000 Palestinians thronged to the border fence area, burning tires and throwing rocks at soldiers. Over the weekend, Israel halted Qatari-donated fuel shipments to Gaza's power plant in response to the escalated protests.

Earlier, Conricus told CBN News that Hamas is trying to involve the global community by getting Israel to kill Palestinians.

"We are very close to a different kind of activity, an activity that will include very powerful blows".

At the same time, the terror group stepped up its efforts to infiltrate Israel and to abduct Israeli soldiers or citizens, while continuing the digging of terror tunnels under the border with Israel.

At least 205 Palestinians have been killed since protests and clashes erupted along the border in late March, with at least 50 of those killed identified as members of Hamas. "If it has sense, Hamas will stop firing and stop these violent disturbances - now", he said.
