In a series of tweets Sunday, the president denounced rocket attacks by Hamas and Palestinian Islamic jihad against Israel.

"When we have the upper hand, we need once and for all to finish the terror because this will repeat itself and will not stop", said Jacque Mendel, a resident of the coastal city of Ashdod, where a man was killed in his auto by a rocket Sunday night.

They highlighted the targeted killing of an alleged Hamas operative responsible for transferring Iranian money into Gaza that was used to help "fund their rocket fire at Israelis".

President Trump tweeted out USA backing for Israel, saying: "We support Israel 100 percent in its defense of its citizens".

Indeed, by the end of the weekend, the number of rockets fired into Israel from Gaza reached 690, according to the IDF.

Israel's Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz ordered on Sunday that the country's only operating natural gas field, the offshore Tamar field, be closed as a precaution after violence between militants in the Gaza Strip and Israel flared up at the end of last week. Hamas controls the Gaza strip where they launch their attacks against Israel. "Hamas and Islamic Jihad understood that the rules of the game have changed and therefore ceased firing on their own initiative after repeated requests (ignored by Israel) for a ceasefire".

The flare-up came as Hamas sought further steps from Israel towards easing its blockade under a previous ceasefire brokered by Egypt and the United Nations.

It commemorates its Memorial and Independence Days later this week and is due to host the Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv from May 14 to 18, which is expected to draw thousands to Israel.

Israel's military said some 690 rockets and other projectiles have been fired over the Gaza frontier since Saturday, with more than 240 intercepted by its air defence system.

"The campaign is not over and requires patience and judgment".

Palestinian medical officials said the dead in Gaza included two pregnant women and two babies. "Israel has the absolute right to defend itself & the US stands by our great ally Israel".

As is common in such situations, Israel has not publicly commented on whether a ceasefire has been reached.

Still, Hamas' leader Ismail Haniyeh said late Sunday that the militant group was "not interested in a new war", and the start on Monday of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan likely lessened motivation for battle.

Israel's military reported no new air strikes in Gaza. "I think Israel needs to strike them very, very hard so that they learn their lesson", said Haim Cohen, 69, a retired electrician from the coastal city of Ashdod 15 miles (25 km) north of the Gaza Strip.

In Gaza, streets were empty as the Israeli military struck hundreds of times, hitting military targets, residential buildings and a Turkish state media office.

While there is no detailed information on what was the aim of the Hamas cyber attack which prompted the airstrike, the commander of the IDF Cyber Division Brigadier General "D" said that it was aimed at "harming the quality of life of Israeli citizens" according to a The Times of Israel report.
