  • Palestinian mourners carry the body of a Hamas member killed by Israeli fire during his funeral in Jabalia in the northern Gaza Strip

A Palestinian was killed in northern Gaza, while at least six were wounded in raids aimed targeting sites across the strip, the Gazan health ministry said.

The majority hit open areas while four were intercepted, it said.

In response to the rocket fire, the Israeli Air Force bombed 12 Hamas targets in Gaza.

Injured person is taken to ambulance after a missile from Gaza Strip hit in the town of Sderot, Israel, Wednesday, Aug. 7, 2018.

The rocket fire also comes as a senior Hamas official said United Nations and Egyptian mediated ceasefire talks between the terror group and Israel have reached "advanced stages" and a deal was expected to be signed soon.

Air raid sirens sounded nearly nonstop in southern Israel from sundown on Wednesday, warning residents to stay in shelters as more than 80 rockets were fired in their direction.

It said the Palestinian "resistance" had fired a large number of projectiles at "enemy positions in the Gaza envelope".

"The Israeli strike was conducted in response to the rockets launched from the Gaza Strip at Israeli territory over the course of the evening and night", it said.

The Israeli army said Wednesday's violence began with militants firing guns at an Israeli engineering vehicle, and Israeli troops responding with tank fire.

"As of now, approximately 70 rocket launches were identified from the Gaza Strip at Israeli territory", the army said in a statement.

There were no immediate reports of fresh Israeli injuries or damage.

The area where the rockets fell have been closed off by the police as bomb disposal units were called to the scene.

In a written statement, the Ezzeddin Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas, claimed responsibility for the attacks.

Jamie McGoldrick, the United Nations' humanitarian coordinator for the Palestinian territories, in a news release called Israel's restriction of fuel imports "a risky practice, with grave consequences on the rights of people in Gaza".

Hamas warned Israel - with which it has fought three wars since 2008 - it would pay for the attack.

Clashes along the Gaza border since the end of March have seen at least 165 Palestinians killed by Israeli fire.

The cross-border violence comes soon after a delegation of senior Hamas officials visited Gaza to discuss a ceasefire agreement with Israel proposed by Egypt and the UN.

The footage was released by the Israeli Defence Force (IDF) and shows one rocket explode midair, but then a huge explosion causes mass panic and screams from school children.

The Swedes were all activists from the "Ship to Gaza" group who were attempting to break Israel's blockade and bring supplies including medical equipment to Gaza, while the remaining five people on the boat included three crew members from Canada, France and Germany, and two British journalists.
