Seven people were wounded early Monday morning after a house in central Israel was hit by a rocket, apparently fired from the Gaza Strip.

Emergency responders said a woman in her 50s is in light-to-moderate condition and the others wounded, two of them babies, suffered light injuries.

The Israeli army confirmed that it identified a launch from Gaza. The Israel Police said the house caught fire, but emergency services said no one was trapped in it.

Rocket alert sounded north of Tel Aviv moments earlier and residents of Hasharon and Emek Hefer districts reported an explosion.

The IDF is currently pounding Gaza and a larger operation is being considered, according to reports.

IDF Chief of Staff Aviv Kochavi held a meeting with the heads of the Military Intelligence Directorate, Operational Directorate, Israel Air Force chief, and Shabak (Israel Security Agency).

“Due to the security assessment led by the Chief of Staff, we are currently bringing two brigades who were training and a the division commander for the Southern Command. We are calling in some reservists, for specific tasks. We are prepared for a wide variety of situations.”

Hamas, however, claimed that rocket was accidentally launched, denying the incident was a deliberate attack on Israel.
