The Gaza Health Ministry said a 25-year-old militant was killed inside one of the posts targeted.

"At 4 am (0100 GMT), Israelis in the city of Beersheba were running to bomb shelters after a rocket was launched from the Gaza Strip at Israel", the army tweeted.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu pledged to take "strong action" against the Gaza Strip after a rocket from Gaza slammed into an Israeli home in Beersheba before dawn on Wednesday.

"Israeli jets started to attack terrorist targets in the Gaza strip", the army said hours after a projectile hit the city of Beer Sheva.

Egyptian General Intelligence Services chief Abbas Kamel postponed his visit to the Gaza, the West Bank and Israel Wednesday, after a sharp uptick in cross-border violence near the Strip.

Lieberman also ordered the the reduction of the permitted fishing zone along the Gaza coast to three nautical miles, the defence ministry body responsible for Palestinian civil affairs, COGAT, said.

In response to the rocket attack, the Israel Defense Forces said Israeli planes struck more than 20 Hamas terror targets, including a tunnel that infiltrated Israel and a factory used to manufacture components to build tunnels.

The situation in southern Israel further deteriorated last Friday when an estimated 15,000 Palestinian Arabs participated in an orgy of violence along the border with Israel, while Hamas used the chaos to launch another attempt to infiltrate the Jewish state and to kidnap IDF soldiers.

"We will have a good indication on Friday where things are heading - based on whether Hamas continues to escalate protests, and if there is an indication from Israel that it will allow a resumption of fuel deliveries", he said.

The sources said that an Egyptian delegation headed by General Intelligence officials Ayman Badi and Ahmed Abdel Khaleq, who are now in the Gaza Strip, succeeded in preventing an all-out military confrontation between Hamas and Israel.

He also suspended shipments of fuel that had been trucked daily into Gaza over the previous week under a deal brokered by the UN and backed by the United States, Israel and others.

Israel maintains a crippling blockade of the Gaza Strip which critics say amounts to collective punishment of the impoverished enclave's two million residents.

It had seen thousands of litres (gallons) of fuel paid for by Qatar delivered to generate desperately needed power in the impoverished territory.

On a related note, FOX News continues to misreport the staging of Hamas's recurring assaults on Israel as a "protest" against "the Israeli blockade" - the blockade that is meant to prevent terrorists from obtaining the tools of their trade.

"Tonight, a large portion of southern Israel's population was put under immediate danger as Gazan terrorists fired a rocket at Beer Sheva (Beersheva)", IDF spokesman Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus said in a statement.

Rivlin praised the fast reaction of Israelis in Beersheba, saying the mother had saved her family.

The rocket attack was the latest in escalating violence, which has seen Palestinian rioting along the Gaza border for almost seven months.

Gaza's Health Ministry says 32 Palestinians have been wounded by Israeli fire during a mass protest along the beach near the Israeli frontier.

Hamas's goal is create as much confusion and violence on the border as possible to elicit a response from the Israeli Defense Forces that could provide the terror group with an opportunity to kidnap soldiers. Late Wednesday, the Egyptian delegation abruptly left Gaza and entered Israel.
