Israel's military later confirmed it struck Gaza, saying it hit 12 Hamas sites in all, including "an offensive maritime terror tunnel. several terror sites in military compounds throughout the Gaza Strip. rocket manufacturing facilities and a central logistical military complex".

Under the agreement's terms, according to the same Hamas official, the Rafah border crossing between Egypt and the Gaza Strip would be opened on a permanent basis, and Israeli restrictions on the Kerem Shalom border crossing would also be eased "dramatically".

The Israeli army earlier on Wednesday said Palestinians fired at least 36 rockets across the border.

Mahmoud Daher, of the World Health Organization in Gaza, said in a telephone interview "the situation is very serious".

Hamas's military wing said it was behind the rocket attacks.

Israeli media said the European Union had prepared a plan for transportation in the West Bank, including Area C, which constitutes about 60 percent of the occupied territory, which is under full Israeli civil and security control.

The rocket fire came from Gaza shortly after an IDF tank struck Hamas posts in Gaza after hots were fired across the border towards civilian engineering vehicles working on the IDF's underground barrier with the coastal enclave.

Sirens wailed in southern Israel warning of incoming projectiles from Gaza and Israeli media reported two people were lightly injured from shrapnel in the border town of Sderot.

A watchtower of the Qassam Brigades in Al Zaytun neighbourhood was targeted by the Israeli shelling.

The escalation comes after the Hamas leadership convened for a rare meeting in Gaza on Friday.

Armed Israeli drones and F-16 warplanes have pounded various areas across the besieged Gaza Strip, killing at least a Palestinian and injuring several others.

United Nations and Egyptian-led efforts are under way to mediate a long-term truce between Israel and Hamas that would end a four-month surge of violence along the Israel-Gaza border.

Twenty-four of the slain protesters were minors, the ministry has said.

Protesters demand the "right of return" to their homes and villages in historical Palestine, from which they were driven in 1948 to make way for the new state of Israel.

The Gaza Strip, home to almost two million Palestinians, has been reeling under a crippling Israeli blockade since 2007.
