On Sunday evening, the army struck three targets including an operating tent from which people had flown attack kites laden with burning petrol and explosive devices over the border, setting alight large swaths of land.

There were no reports of injuries or damages.

The exchange early Wednesday was the biggest flare-up between the sides in weeks.

Palestinians are angered by what they say is a United States bias towards Israel that has ended its role as an impartial mediator in the conflict.

"The entrance of helium gas into the Gaza Strip will be limited in light of the use of it by terrorists to fill incendiary balloons", Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman said.

Israeli warplanes struck Hamas positions in Gaza after Palestinian militants there fired dozens of rockets and mortars at southern communities early Wednesday, the military said.

Around 45 rockets were fired overnight from Gaza towards Israel, the army said in a statement.

A graphic distributed by the military showed 21 impact sites in Israeli territory and it released a photo of one crater just outside a school. Its Iron Dome missile defence system intercepted four rockets, it added, while an unspecified numbers of them fell into Israeli territory.

Saban specifically attacked Sanders, who has emerged in recent months as one of the most vocal critics of Israel's policies in the U.S. Senate.

Residents of the south got little sleep as warning sirens blared throughout the night.

No casualties were reported in Israel.

The protests are aimed in part at drawing attention to the decade-long Israeli-Egyptian blockade on the territory imposed after Hamas, a group sworn to Israel's destruction, seized control of Gaza.

Meanwhile, the UN agency for Palestinian refugees is "weeks away from painful cuts" to its emergency assistance for Gaza and refugees elsewhere, because of an unprecedented gap in its budget of more than US$250 million (Dh918m), the UN Middle East envoy said Tuesday. Egypt has also kept its own Gaza frontier largely closed.

At least 127 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli troops during mass demonstrations along the Gaza border since March 30 and the men sending the kites over the fence believe they have found an effective new weapon.

Palestinians say the protests are an outpouring of rage by people demanding the right to return to homes their families fled or were driven from following the founding of Israel 70 years ago.
