Rocket strikes house in central Israel

A rocket, reportedly fired from the Gaza Strip, has hit a house in central Israel. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is cutting short his trip to the US to deliver what he says will be a "strong Israeli response."

Six people were injured in Israel after suspected rockets struck deep inside the country on Monday.
The Israeli military said one rocket was fired from the Gaza Strip, striking a house in Mishmeret, an agricultural town north of Tel Aviv.
Magen David Adom rescue service said it was treating seven people, including a 50-year-old woman who was moderately wounded.
"It's a miracle that nobody got killed," said Assi Dvilanski, a Magen David Adom paramedic.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he would fly back to Israel immediately after meeting US President Donald Trump on Monday. 
"In light of the security events I decided to cut short my visit to the US," Netanyahu said, adding that Israel would respond "forcefully" to the "heinous attack."

The military blamed the strike on Hamas and said it was sending reinforcements to the Gaza border. Two brigades were deployed and reservists called up. Israel also closed the main crossings into the enclave.
"The launch was carried out by Hamas from one of its positions in the Rafah area," Israeli army spokesman Ronen Manelis said.
Hamas announced its Gaza chief, Yehiya Sinwar, had canceled a planned public appearance.
Rockets do not normally reach so far into the country. The attack comes 10 days after rockets were fired at Tel Aviv for the first time in two years, however Hamas leaders in Gaza claimed that was an accident. Nonetheless Israel responded with heavy fire.
