(ROUGH CUT ONLY - NO REPORTER NARRATION) A rocket fired from the Gaza Strip struck a house in southern Israel on Monday (November 12), causing damage but no injuries, as Israeli officials warn of a tough response to the latest surge in violence. The rocket hit the town of Netivot, ending a brief overnight lull to three days of fighting which has left six Palestinians dead, including four civilians, and 40 wounded. Eight Israelis have also been wounded in the cross-border attacks. On Saturday (November 10), a Palestinian missile strike wounded four Israeli troops on a jeep patrol along the Gaza boundary, triggering army shelling in which four Palestinian civilians died. In turn dozens of mortars and rockets were launched at Israel and the military carried out a series of air strikes throughout the Gaza Strip. Israel's Iron Dome missile defence system knocked down a number of longer-range rockets.
