Earlier this week two of its militants were killed after Israel shelled a Hamas border post in northern Gaza.

Palestinian militants fired dozens of rockets into Israel and the Israeli military carried out scores of air strikes as fighting near the Gaza-Israel border intensified overnight into Thursday.

Armed Israeli drones and F-16 warplanes have pounded various areas across the besieged Gaza Strip, killing at least a Palestinian and injuring several others.

The IDF closed several roads near the Gaza border earlier on Wednesday after warning it was concerned of a retaliation from Hamas after two of its elite members were killed in an IDF strike on Tuesday.

A Hamas militant was also killed in one of the strikes, while at least 12 people in Gaza were reportedly injured, health officials said.

According to IDF, the Iron Dome missile defense system intercepted two of eight rockets fired.

According to the IDF, approximately 70 rockets were launched from the Gaza Strip at Israel.

At least two homes in Sderot were damaged by rocket fire from the Gaza Strip Wednesday.

A video has been circulating on social media that captures the terror that Israelis endure when Hamas launches rockets at them.

Israel and Hamas have fought three wars since 2008.

The source, speaking on condition of anonymity, said that as part of the deal, which was brokered by Egypt and the United Nations with input from Turkey and Qatar, Hamas and Israel would initially observe a two-week trial cease-fire.

Israeli media said the European Union had prepared a plan for transportation in the West Bank, including Area C, which constitutes about 60 percent of the occupied territory, which is under full Israeli civil and security control.

On Wednesday, UN Middle East envoy Nickolay Mladenov condemned the Hamas rocket fire and called for both sides to step away from the brink.

Palestinians insist on linking the Gaza Strip and the West Bank in any final peace agreement with Israel that leads to the establishment of an independent Palestinian state. One Israeli soldier was killed by a Gaza sniper during this period.

Israel has lost tracts of farmland and forest to fires started by kites and helium balloons laden with incendiary material which have caused fires in Israeli forests and farmlands and flown over the border by Palestinians in Gaza.
