JERUSALEM (AP) The Israeli military says a rocket launched from Gaza has hit a house in southern Israel. No injuries were reported.

Militants in Gaza launched more than a dozen rockets at Israel overnight, the military said. Earlier, a separate rocket also hit a house without wounding anyone.

Thursday's violence comes amid mounting tensions surrounding the suspected revenge killing of a 17-year-old Arab in Jerusalem Wednesday. Mohammed Abu Khdeir's family accuses extremist Jews of having killed him in revenge for the killing of three Israeli teens whose bodies were discovered in the West Bank this week.

Police say Abu Khdeir's death is still under investigation.

Israel says the militant Hamas, which rules Gaza, abducted and killed the Israeli teens. Rocket fire and Israeli airstrikes have intensified since the teens went missing.
