The rocket attack from Gaza appeared to be an act of revenge after a botched Israeli raid the day before killed seven Palestinian militants.

Israel's military said it had so far struck more than 70 militant sites in response to over 300 rockets fired from the Hamas-run territory Monday afternoon into the night.

Israel and Palestinian fighters in Gaza have fought three wars since 2008, and recent months have raised fears of a fourth.

A Palestinian Tuesday was killed and two others were injured in an Israeli strike that targeted a group of Palestinians in al-Shayma area in the town of Beit Lahiya, in the northern Gaza Strip, according to the ministry of health.

On Sunday Israeli forces infiltrated into the Gaza Strip in a civilian vehicle and opened fire on a group of its armed men near the city of Khan Younis, killing one of its commanders, Nour Baraka.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu held an emergency security meeting with his minister of military forces and other senior Israeli military officials in Tel Aviv on Monday, a day after the Israeli raid on Gaza ignited new tensions in the region.

Palestinian resistance factions on Tuesday warned Israel against attacking civilian facilities in the blockaded Gaza Strip.

Israeli gunfire has killed more than 220 Palestinians since the start of the demonstrations, which have included breaches of the border fence.

Lieut-Col. Jonathan Conricus, an Israeli military spokesman, said Hamas and the Islamic Jihad group have more than 20,000 rockets and mortars.

Netanyahu has come under attack at home for allowing the Qatari funds to flow into Gaza, with the photos of cash-stuffed suitcases leading critics to say Israel is paying protection money to Hamas in hopes of achieving quiet.

Two were killed in a strike targeting a group near Aisha mosque east of Rafah, after Israel said it was targeting individuals that were members of "terror squad" launching rockets.

Deadly clashes have accompanied major protests along the Gaza-Israel border that began on March 30.

Witnesses said warning missiles, which carry small warheads, were fired first, hitting but not destroying the outer walls of the seven structures.

One man was pulled dead from the ruins of a building in southern Israel, emergency services organisation United Hatzalah said, adding that a woman recovered from the same building in the city of Ashkelon was in a critical state. The Palestinian protesters have been demanding the right to return for those driven out of their homeland by Israeli wars and other acts of aggression since 1948.
