AVA- “We have just started striking Hamas targets throughout the Gaza Strip,” the Israel Defense Forces tweeted.
Witnesses and a security source in Gaza told AFP there had been at least two strikes on a site belonging to Hamas’s military wing in the west of the Gaza Strip.
Details were not yet clear on the strikes.
The strikes began around the same time Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met U.S. President Donald Trump in Washington.
Netanyahu had earlier vowed a strong response to the rocket that hit a house north of Tel Aviv in a rare long-distance strike.
The house was destroyed and seven Israelis were lightly wounded from burns and shrapnel.
The flare-up comes at a highly sensitive time for Tel Aviv, which holds elections on April 9.
The regime blamed Hamas for the rocket, but a Hamas source denied the Islamist movement, which rules the Palestinian enclave, was behind it.
Netanyahu planned to cut short his Washington visit due to the security situation and return home after meeting Trump.
