Israel accuses Hamas of rocket strike

Israel’s military accused Hamas of carrying out a rocket strike from the Gaza Strip today, and Israeli media said troop reinforcements were being sent to the border of the Palestinian enclave.

The allegation against Hamas was made in a tweet by an Israeli military spokesman, Lieutenant-Colonel Avichai Adraee.

According to him, seven people have been injured after a rocket fired from the Gaza Strip hit a house in central Israel. The rocket came down at 05:25 local time (03:25 GMT) in Mishmeret, 20km north of the city of Tel Aviv.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is cutting short a trip to the U.S. over the incident, has vowed to respond with force, BBC reported.
