BREAKING PHOTOS: 300 rockets fired from Gaza, IAF strikes 70 targets

VIDEOS show Gaza rockets hurtling towards Israel

On Sunday night, seven Palestinians, including a senior Hamas commander, were killed when Israeli military forces staged an incursion into the southern Gaza Strip.

Six Palestinians were killed in the Israeli strikes, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Health. The man was later identified as a man from Hebron, the West Bank's largest Palestinian city.

Israelis and Gazans woke to another day of rocket fire and airstrikes on Tuesday, adding new urgency to efforts to quell fighting that is the heaviest since their 2014 war. "The special operation yesterday was not meant to kill or abduct terrorists, but to strengthen Israeli security", a spokesperson said, adding that the battle was "very complex".

The Foreign Press Association expressed concern that Hamas security had prevented two German journalists and a photojournalist from leaving Gaza, citing the "security situation". The protests are aimed at pressuring Israel into lifting a decadelong blockade on Gaza.

In an apparent attempt to defuse tensions, Israel's military spokesman said the special forces had not been dispatched to assassinate Hamas commanders, a tactic that led to wider conflict in the past and which has largely been abandoned.

Five others were also al-Qassam members, while the seventh was a member of a separate militant alliance known as the Popular Resistance Committees, Gazan security sources said. One Israeli soldier has been killed. Near the destroyed TV station, residents salvaged papers and belongings from their damaged homes.

Egyptian and United Nations officials have been mediating between Israel and Hamas in an effort to reach a long-term truce deal.

Israeli police said a rocket hit a house in Netivot, another southern Israeli town.

Six other people were lightly wounded by shrapnel in various attacks, medical officials said.

For decades, the bases have been camouflaged to prevent destruction from preemptive strikes and during military operations. US analysts say they have located more than half of an estimated 20 secret North Korean missile development facilities.

"In response to yesterday's crime, the joint command of Palestinian factions announce the beginning of bombardment of the enemy's settlements with scores of rockets", Hamas's armed wing said in a statement after funerals were held for the militants.

Hamas also canceled a weekly beach protest in northwestern Gaza along the border with Israel.

Palestinian officials and witnesses said the Israeli military bombed the studios of the Arabic-language al-Aqsa satellite television network, which is affiliated to Hamas.

In the most recent, over 2,200 Palestinians were killed, more than half of them civilians, and tens of thousands were left homeless.

The exposure of such an operation by Israeli special forces inside Gaza would be extremely rare, he says. Seven Hamas fighters and an Israeli lieutenant colonel were killed in the chaos.

The latest fighting comes as Netanyahu defended his decision to allow Qatar to transfer $15 million in aid to Gaza as part of his effort to bring calm to the Hamas-controlled region.

In a tweet after his arrival back home, Netanyahu praised the slain officer, whose identity was kept confidential for security reasons, and said "our forces acted courageously".

In an Arabic Facebook post, the head of Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) Major General Kamil Abu Rokon said that "the terrorist organization Hamas crossed a red line; Israel is intensifying its response against it".
