Israel ‘responding forcefully’ to rocket attack


Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says Israel is “responding forcefully” to a morning rocket attack in central part of the Jewish state.

Israel’s military says it’s started striking Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip after a rocket hit a house north Tel Aviv and wounded seven people.

Netanyahu spoke during a meeting at the White House with President Donald Trump, who later signed an official proclamation formally recognizing Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights.

Netanyahu calls the rocket attack “wanton aggression” and says “Israel will not tolerate this. I will not tolerate it.”

The prime minister says he plans to return to Israel after the meeting with Trump.
