On the Israeli side of the border, Palestinian fire destroyed a bus, critically wounding one person, health officials said.

Three of the missiles were intercepted by the Iron Dome missile-defense system, with the rest falling in open fields outside populated areas.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu rushed back to Israel on Monday, hours after an Israeli army officer and seven Palestinians, including a local Hamas commander, were killed after an incursion by Israeli special forces into the Gaza Strip.

Sinwar added that while there was no emerging agreement with Israel at this time, Hamas is establishing "understandings" with Egypt, Qatar and the United Nations "to lift the blockade on Gaza".

According to Palestinian sources, the Israeli unit was about 3km (2 miles) inside the Gaza Strip, which borders Israel, when it fired at Nur Barakeh, a commander of the Izzedine al-Qassam brigades, the group's military wing.

At least 221 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire, the majority shot during protests and clashes, since the protests began, while others died in tank fire or air strikes.

"During the operation, it found itself in a very complex situation, faced by enemy forces". Their attempt follows months of Hamas-led riots on the Gaza border and arson balloons that have burned an estimated 10,000 acres of Israeli farmland, nature reserves and forests. At the weekend, Israel allowed the transfer of a reported $15 million in cash to the Gaza Strip from Qatar, partly for the payment of wages to government employees.

Trump to Macron: Saudi Arabia cornerstone of stability in region
Trump called off a a trip to Aisne-Marne American Cemetery and Memorial on Saturday after a bad weather call grounded Marine One. The military and the soldiers within it are one of Donald Trump's favourite topics when addressing a crowd.

"No IDF (Israeli military) soldiers were abducted during the IDF's operational activity in the Gaza Strip", a spokesperson said, quoted by Israeli media network Arutz Sheva's website.

In Hebron, in southern West Bank, the soldiers broke into and searched many homes in several neighborhoods, and summoned Midhat al-Juneidi for interrogation in Etzion military base and security center, north of Hebron. The officer's funeral was being held Monday.

Recent weeks have seen Israeli decisions to allow Qatar to provide the Gaza Strip with millions of dollars in aid for salaries as well as fuel to help ease an electricity crisis. Indeed, last Friday's border unrest was slightly different - mainly due to the number of Palestinians who approached the fence, the number of explosive devices thrown at IDF troops, and the amount of tires that were burned.

The blockade has led to over 50% unemployment, power outages, and prevents many Gazans from being able to leave the tiny territory.

Hamas's armed wing said an Israeli special forces team had infiltrated near Khan Yunis in the southern Gaza Strip in a civilian auto.

Israel says it is defending its border, but its army has come under global criticism because of the large number of unarmed protesters who have been shot.
