Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman has convened an urgent consultation in Tel Aviv of security and military leaders over events in the Gaza Strip Sunday night. He briefed the prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu in Paris. At 10:20 p.m, rocket alerts sounded through southern Israel, focusing on the districts adjacent to the Gaza Strip and central Negev. This followed the IDF report of an exchange of fire between Israeli and Hamas forces in southern Gaza earlier this evening following Palestinian reports of five killed, including a senior Hamas commander in the Khan Younes area of southern Gaza. The IDF denies any soldiers missing and confirms all members of the force returned to Israeli territory under air cover. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is cutting short his stay in Paris and returning home overnight Sunday.
