TEL AVIV (Ma'an) -- Seven Israelis were injured after a rocket, fired from the besieged Gaza Strip, struck a house north of Tel Aviv City, in central Israel, on Monday morning.

The Israeli army confirmed that the rocket was fired from the Gaza Strip and that the rocket hit an Israeli home, causing a fire to erupt and destroying the house.

Sources said that seven Israelis, including women and children, were injured. Their injuries were described as minor and moderate.

In addition, four family dogs appeared to have been killed during the hit.

It is noteworthy that this is the furthest a rocket, which has been launched from Gaza, has reached in Israel since the 2014 conflict.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is currently in Washington, in the United States, set to meet with US President Donald Trump, however, announced his intention to cut the visit, saying "In light of the security events I have decided to cut short my visit to the US.”

Meanwhile, Israel decided to close the Erez and Kerem Shalom border crossings in Gaza.
