Rocket fired on Israel from Gaza: Israeli army

Rocket fired on Israel from Gaza: Israeli army

The image was taken in an area that was "very risky and hard to access", noted Thomas Coex, AFP's chief photographer for Israel and the Palestinian Territories, France 24 added.

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.

The annual awards are given to acknowledge outstanding work in the fields of photo, print, radio and television journalism.

The Israeli police said that "a rocket struck the city of Beersheba a few moments ago causing damage", although it did not specify the extent of the destruction.

Another rocket launched from Gaza and aimed at central Israel fell into the Mediterranean Sea, the military said. Three other people were wounded.

This morning in Beersheba, Israel, a mother saved her three children's lives by hurrying to their shelter as a Palestinian rocket fired from Gaza blew up their bedrooms.

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.

To this end, "Hamas has turned the violent demonstrations at the Gaza border into 24/7 events to get the IDF soldiers accustomed to the ongoing presence of Palestinian activists at the fence, including at night", the JCPA found. The head of Egypt's General Intelligence Service, Abbas Kamel, will arrive in Gaza on Thursday, sources in Gaza tell CNN.

Oil prices dip amid expectations of higher USA inventories
Khalid al-Falih, the energy minister of the kingdom, said it will continue to be responsible and help keep oil markets stable. Saudi Aramco has an initial pact to take a 25 percent stake in the planned 1.2 million bpd West Coast refinery.

The rioters carried burning tires, Molotov cocktails, hand grenades, rocks and live fireworks, all of which they threw at Israeli soldiers who were stationed on the other side of the border, to secure the region from terrorist infiltration.

It comes a day after Israel's defence minister said the time had come to deliver a "heavy blow" to Hamas after weeks of escalation violence along the border.

The protests have intensified as Egyptian-mediated cease-fire efforts faltered.

Health officials in Gaza said a 25-year-old Palestinian man, identified by Al-Mujahedeen Brigades - a small militant faction - as one of its members, was killed.

Since March, 155 Palestinians participating or attending the protests were killed.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed a devastating response to the continuing border crisis during a weekend cabinet meeting.

Lieberman said that deadly clashes on Friday, after Israel helped facilitate diesel shipments to the fuel-starved Gaza Strip, were a turning point. "If Hamas is intelligent, it will cease fire and violence now".

Hamas seeks a cease-fire with Israel to secure an easing of the blockade but accuses its West Bank rivals, Fatah, of thwarting the effort.
