View of central Israel seen from Tel Aviv as an Iron Dome air defense system fires to intercept a rocket from the Gaza Strip, Israel, Thursday, July 10, 2014. Israel dramatically escalated its aerial assault in Gaza Thursday hitting hundreds of Hamas targets, as Palestinians reported more than a dozen of people killed in strikes that hit a home and a beachside cafe and Israel's missile defense system once again intercepted rockets fired by militants at the country's heartland. (AP Photo/Dan Balilty)JERUSALEM (AP) — Rockets fired from Lebanon struck Israel early Friday as long-range missile fire from Gaza continued against the country for a fourth day.

Israeli firefighters put out fire on burning cars in an apartment building parking lot after it was hit by what Israeli police say was a rocket fired by Palestinians from the Gaza Strip, in AshdodBy Nidal al-Mughrabi and Ori Lewis GAZA/JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel pressed on for a fourth day with its Gaza offensive on Friday, striking the Hamas-dominated enclave from air and sea, as Palestinian militants kept up rocket attacks deep into the Jewish state. At least 79 Palestinians, most of them civilians, have been killed in the offensive, which Israel says it launched to end persistent rocket attacks on its civilian population, some of which have reached Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and other cities. The salvoes into Israel have caused no fatalities or serious injuries, due in part to interception by Israel's partly-U.S. funded Iron Dome aerial defense system. One rocket on Friday hit a petrol station in Israel's port city of Ashdod, causing a huge blaze and at least three people were seriously wounded, an ambulance spokesman said.

At least two rockets were fired on Friday from southern Lebanon into Israel, Lebanon's news agency and security sources said, adding that it was unclear who had fired them. Southern Lebanon is a stronghold of Hezbollah, a Shi'ite Muslim group that battled Israel seven years ago and is engaged in Syria's civil war in support of President Bashar al-Assad. The news agency NNA, citing its correspondent in Tyre, said the rockets were fired towards "occupied territories" at 6.30 a.m. (0030 ET) from the Hasbaya area in Lebanon. In December, rockets launched from south Lebanon struck northern Israel, provoking a response across a border that had been largely quiet since a war in 2006.
