Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Monday that Sen. Cory Booker was wrong to claim that President Trump is incorrectly taking credit for an economic boom started by former President Barack Obama.

Booker, D-N.J., said over the weekend that Trump continues to take credit for economic milestones that Obama helped usher in.

“We had a tax plan [in 2018] that was all about giving the wealthiest people more of a break,” Booker, also a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, said on CNN.

Gingrich, R-Ga., said on “America’s Newsroom” that Booker “keeps repeating rhetoric that’s false,” adding that “anybody who’s serious knows that none of [the recovery] had anything to do with Barack Obama.”

SARAH SANDERS: ‘TRULY MIND-BOGGLING’ HOW PEOPLE CAN CHOOSE SOCIALISM WITH TRUMP’S ECONOMY

He said Trump has bested Obama-era GDP growth numbers every quarter since taking office, and that American manufacturing and wage growth has increased “dramatically.”

He said that many top Democrats instead want to push forward on the “high taxes, big regulations [and] anti-business attitudes” that led to a “very weak economy” in the past.

“I don’t know of any president in our lifetime that’s carried as many negative burdens from the political class as Donald Trump has,” Gingrich added.

Gingrich’s comments came after White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders expressed disbelief on Saturday at the fact that Democrats pushed “socialism” while living under President Trump’s growing economy.

BOOM: APRIL SAW JOBS, WAGES SURGE

“It’s truly mind-boggling. I don’t know why anyone would vote for a system that they are literally watching crumble before their very eyes,” Sanders said while appearing Saturday on “Watters’ World.”

“Under this president, [the] American economy is booming, we’re thriving, and we’re doing better than we’ve done in a long time,” she added.

She made those remarks just after the administration celebrated a positive jobs report which included 263,000 added jobs and the lowest unemployment rate since 1969.

Former US drug czar says national focus on opioid epidemic is overlooking real culprit

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6033412767001_6033400296001-vs Former US drug czar says national focus on opioid epidemic is overlooking real culprit fox-news/us/crime/police-and-law-enforcement fox-news/us/crime/drugs fox-news/topic/opioid-crisis fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/health/mental-health/drug-and-substance-abuse fox news fnc/health fnc Elizabeth Llorente c0155725-6ea8-5134-991c-be45a5b55e8e article

William Bennett, the nation’s first drug czar, said Monday that the debate about the opioid overdose epidemic wrongly focuses on prescription drugs.

While the government’s opioid crackdown has involved reducing the supply of legal opioids and reducing painkiller prescription rates, black market opioids such as illicit fentanyl and heroin actually have been the driving force of the epidemic in recent years, said Bennett during an interview on “Fox & Friends.”

“The nature of the problem has changed in the last two or three years,” said Bennett, who served as Director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy under President George H. W. Bush. “It’s now fentanyl, it’s now heroin” that account for most of the overdoses.

A key reason, Bennett said, is that fentanyl and heroin are cheaper than prescription drugs.

AS DOCTORS TAPER OR END OPIOID PRESCRIPTIONS, MANY PATIENTS DRIVEN TO DESPAIR, SUICIDE

“When I was up in New Hampshire, they told me you [can pay] $10 for a pill –to get an Oxycontin, [but] two bucks to get heroin, three bucks to get fentanyl.”

“And that’s the nature of the problem,” Bennett said. “You talk to law enforcement people that will tell you they haven’t seen a lot of the other stuff – OxyContin — on the street but they’re loaded with these cases of fentanyl.”

A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report last week said that about 70,000 Americans died of drug overdoses in 2017. Nearly 48,000 involved at least one type of opioid, roughly 30,000 involved fentanyl or some other kind of synthetic opioid, 15,500 involved heroin, and 14,500 involved prescription opioid painkillers. Other government data have indicated that many people who overdosed on prescription opioids stole them or obtained them from the person to whom they were prescribed.

Bennett said he is glad to see pharmaceutical companies prosecuted if they engaged in illegal activities – such as lying about the addictive properties of some painkillers — in order to boost sales of prescription opioids.

Just last week, in the latest of a series of actions against pharmaceutical companies, the founder of a highly addictive legal fentanyl spray was convicted on charges related to paying doctors millions in bribes to prescribe the drug.

The founder, John Kapoor, the 76-year-old former chairman of Insys Therapeutics, was found guilty of racketeering conspiracy after 15 days of jury deliberations.

TOUGH NEW OPIOID POLICIES LEAVE SOME CANCER AND POST-SURGERY PATIENTS WITHOUT PAINKILLERS

“They should be investigated and convicted if they committed a crime,” Bennett said, adding, “What I am concerned about is the emphasis [is] so much on these pharma companies – on OxyContin and Oxycodone—yes, they can be dangerous, yes, people have gotten addicted.”

“But most of the deaths that come from those drugs and where you see deaths from OxyContin, and Oxycodone, prescription drugs, it’s because of illegal diversion.”

The federal crackdown on legal opioids has led many prescribers to forcibly taper down or altogether abandon chronic pain patients who have in many cases responsibly taken painkillers for years in order to function.

Many states have implemented strict regulations as a result of a 2016 CDC guideline on opioid prescribing.

The CDC has said often that the guideline was not meant to be enforced, and that it was issued to help primary care physicians prescribing opioids to a first-time user.

“Most people, the vast majority of the people, who are prescribed these [painkillers] do not abuse them,” Bennett said. “The CDC had to come back and issue another kind of guidance, saying a lot of people who need pain pills are not getting them.”

Both the CDC and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warned doctors last month not to abruptly stop prescribing opioid painkillers to patients who are taking them for chronic debilitating pain, generally lasting more than three months.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Former Education Secretary William Bennett says Hillary Clinton should learn ‘how to hold ’em’ and ‘how to fold ’em’

Former Education Secretary William Bennett said Monday that Hillary Clinton needs to move on from her defeat in the 2016 presidential election.

“You gotta know when to hold ‘em, you gotta know when to fold ‘em,” Bennett said on “Fox & Friends.” “She really has to give this up.”

Bennett was referring to Clinton’s remark Saturday night in Los Angeles – where she appeared with her husband, Bill, as part of their “Evening with the Clintons” tour – in which she suggested that she should have been president.

HILLARY CLINTON SUGGESTS ELECTION ‘STOLEN’ FROM HER 

“I think it’s also critical to understand that,” Clinton said, “as I’ve been telling candidates who have come to see me, you can run the best campaign, you can even become the nominee, and you can have the election stolen from you.”

Clinton made similar remarks in an MSNBC interview on Wednesday. In the interview, she said foreign influence in an election could mean victory for the wrong candidate.

Clinton won the popular vote in her 2016 campaign against Trump by about 3 million votes, but lost the electoral college 304 to 227.

Bennett recalled when Trump was asked in 2016 if he would concede if he lost the election, and the Republican nominee said he’d think about it.

“Well, Hillary had trouble conceding,” said Bennett, who was education secretary in the Reagan administration, “Now we’re two years later, two-and-half years later, [and she’s] still having trouble.”

“She really has to give this up,” Bennett added. “It’s like watching a pitcher come back who’s way past his prime. She keeps coming [back].”

A new edition of the book “Obama: The Call of History,” by New York Times White House reporter Peter Baker reveals that former President Barack Obama and his aides saw Clinton’s “soulless” campaign in 2016 as a key reason for her defeat, according to The Daily Mail, which published excerpts.

Baker wrote that Obama and his camp saw Clinton as “the one who could not translate his strong record and healthy economy into a winning message.”

“Never mind that Trump essentially ran the same playbook against Clinton that Obama did eight years earlier, portraying her as a corrupt exemplar of the status quo,” Baker wrote, “She brought many of her troubles on herself. No one forced her to underestimate the danger in the Midwest states of Wisconsin and Michigan. No one forced her to set up a private email server that would come back to haunt her. No one forced her to take hundreds of thousands of dollars from Goldman Sachs and other pillars of Wall Street for speeches. No one forced her to run a scripted, soulless campaign that tested eighty-five slogans before coming up with ‘Stronger Together.’”

Former ICE Acting Director Tom Homan: I respect Mark Morgan for getting back into the fight

Following the announcement Obama-era Border Patrol Chief Mark Morgan will lead U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), former ICE Acting Director Tom Homan backed the president’s pick.

Having spent the majority of his career in law enforcement, Morgan will now switch gears to head ICE, should he be confirmed. Homan said during an appearance on “America’s Newsroom” on Monday morning that he understands the decision to acquiesce the president’s requests.

“You have to respect Mark Morgan for jumping back in the fight, right?” Homan said.

“Mark had a tough decision, but I think he’s doing the right thing. He’s spent his career in law enforcement, the president has asked him to help and he’s come back into the fight.”

MEXICO WEIGHS RETALIATORY TARIFF AGAINST U.S. OVER BORDER SLOWDOWNS

He went on to discuss the challenges that Morgan will likely face in the role, as many politicians, including 2020 Democratic hopefuls such as Elizabeth Warren, have advocated for the abolition of the department.

“I respect anybody that’s willing to come back in such a difficult fight when half of Congress does not support what ICE does. He’s going to take that on every day, so hats off to Mark Morgan, I think he’s going to do a good job,” Homan said.

President Trump announced his decision on Twitter Sunday morning, calling Morgan a “true believer and American Patriot.”

Morgan has previously vocalized his support for President Trump’s border wall and illustrated his beliefs in an opinion piece for Fox News published in March.

“It’s time to stop listening to those driven by a personal political ideology and arm yourself with facts, thorough analysis, and the perspective of credible experts. It’s an emergency,” he wrote.

Joe Biden is using race as a divide and conquer campaign strategy: Deroy Murdock

Westlake Legal Group joe-biden-is-using-race-as-a-divide-and-conquer-campaign-strategy-deroy-murdock Joe Biden is using race as a divide and conquer campaign strategy: Deroy Murdock fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/fox-friends fox-news/person/joe-biden fox news fnc/politics fnc article Anna Hopkins 9d734045-809d-5c01-a223-a0ff5a198ba1

During a campaign train stop in Columbia, S.C. over the weekend, 2020 hopeful Joe Biden told voters that “Jim Crow is sneaking back in,” and Fox News contributor Deroy Murdock believes its the former vice president’s attempt to divide voter bases.

“Last year, 24 states introduced or enacted at least 70 bills to curtail the right the vote. And guess what — mostly directed at people of color. You see it. We have Jim Crow sneaking back in,” Biden said on Saturday. During an appearance on “Fox & Friends” Monday morning, Murdock says Biden’s assertion is straight out of the “Democratic playbook.”

“He might start by apologizing for the Democratic Party‘s central, pivotal and indispensable role in introducing the Jim Crow laws and brutally enforcing them,” Murdock argued, before explaining to hosts the duration of time that Jim Crow laws persisted in the United States, essentially legally sanctioning segregation.

South Carolina is expected to be a crucial state in the Democratic primaries.

SANDERS SAYS ‘THERE’S NO QUESTION’ WHO IS MORE PROGRESSIVE BETWEEN HIM AND BIDEN

Murdock argued that Biden’s discussion of Jim Crow is an attempt to use race as a tool to drive the nation further apart.

“It’s all part of the Democratic playbook to keep race relations tense and boost black turnout in 2020,” Murdock said.

“Unfortunately instead of bringing us together the effort is to keep us apart in a divide and conquer strategy.”

Biden serving as the vice president to the nation’s first black president is certainly something he sees as a specializing factor – and he name-dropped the former president several times throughout Saturday’s rally, referring to him as a “friend” and “buddy.”

A Jewish congressman is calling for a criminal investigation into the Muslim American Society (MAS) after the group posted a video from an Islamic center in Philadelphia showing children saying “we will chop off their heads” for Allah and the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem.

Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-N.Y., appearing on “Fox & Friends” Monday, called the video “deeply disturbing,” “dangerous,” and “infuriating to see U.S. children being radicalized on U.S. soil.” The Middle East Media Research Institute, a watchdog group who translated the video and alerted Fox News Friday, said it is not an isolated incident.

SHOCKING VIDEO OF CHILDREN IN PHILADELPHIA MUSLIM SOCIETY: ‘WE WILL CHOP OFF THEIR HEADS’ FOR ALLAH

MAS did respond to Fox News on Friday, but in a statement Saturday, the group said the April 17 video was “unfortunately” uploaded to the Philadelphia’s chapter page “without verifying the content..and making sure it conforms to our hate-free policy…” MAS added the person behind the video has been dismissed, claiming the space was rented to an outside group. The group announced plans for sensitivity training.

“Not all songs were properly vetted,” MAS wrote. “This was an unintended mistake and an oversight in which the center and the students are remorseful. MAS will conduct an internal investigation to ensure this does not occur again.”

But the Army veteran, who spent time at Fort Dix outside of Philadelphia, said MAS’ response is even more infuriating, especially given the group’s alleged connection to the Muslim Brotherhood, something MAS denies.

GLOBAL GROUP OF CHRISTIANS, JEWS WORKING TO ‘SECURE EVERY SYNAGOGUE IN THE WORLD’

“It indicates that maybe they aren’t outraged at the fact that they are radicalizing and indoctrinating their own children, it’s that maybe they’re upset they exposed themselves by posting the video onto their own Facebook account,” Zeldin said. “I’m very bothered by it.”

He said it’s unacceptable that MAS is investigating itself.

“They had children talking about chopping off of heads, liberating Al-Aqsa Mosque,” he said. “The message isn’t one that you play and have these kids talk about unintended. That’s unacceptable and obviously unbelievable.”

TRUMP: ‘VIOLENCE AND TERRORISM AGAINST PEOPLE OF ALL FAITHS MUST END’

The shocking video, showing children wearing Palestinian scares and reading radical Islamic terrorism-themed poetry, comes at a time when the Anti-Defamation League reports there were 1,879 anti-Semitic incidents last year in the United States, with a spike of 13 percent worldwide.

To counter that, Zeldin introduced a bill to monitor Palestinian textbooks.

“The Palestinians have anti-Israel, anti-Semitic hate – they incite violence in their own classrooms,” Zeldin said. “This has been going on for years. The United States, in the past, has supplemented efforts to fight back against the hate that’s in the Palestinian textbooks.”

Zeldin said information from a recently declassified report shows the State Department lied to Congress about Palestinian education.

“So we introduced legislation to improve the reporting from the State Department to apply pressure to the Palestinians to have them to correct the material, because as we saw in that video in Philadelphia, this is something that is happening every day on the ground in schools and in mosques overseas, and that needs to be fought there as we see it manifest itself as we see the news over the weekend with over 600 rockets launched from Gaza to Israel,” Zeldin said.

MEDIA DIDN’T CALL SRI LANKA MASSACRE AN ATTACK ON CHRISTIANS. HERE’S WHY A MUSLIM SCHOLAR CALLS IT ‘VERY TROUBLING’

Muslim scholar Dr. Qanta Ahmed said the IRS and the government need to look into the funding behind the video where children are parroting terrorist ideology while parents are recording it on American soil.

“The Muslim American Society has a history of being founded by the Muslim Brotherhood in 1993. That’s confirmed in FBI investigations,” Ahmed told “Fox & Friends First” Monday morning. “The Muslim Brotherhood is the mothership of Islamist terrorism and central to that is a cosmic enmity with Judaism, so they have major problems furthermore there’s been investigations by the Middle East Forum that American taxpayer finances go to groups like this to the tune of $310,000 since 2007, going to groups like the Muslim American Society, though over $47 million goes to groups.”

She added that terrorists see indoctrinating children as their investments as part of a global assault on Jews.

“This is a form of contemporary anti-Semitism,” Ahmed said. “This is Islamist anti-Semitism which is very troubling, and it plays, not only here into the demonization and dangers against Jews, but the global delegitimization and assault on Israel that we’re seeing now in Gaza.”

House Intelligence Committee ranking member Devin Nunes, in a Fox News interview Sunday, blasted “cherry-picked” findings in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report about Joseph Mifsud — the mysterious professor from Malta who helped ignite the Russia probe in 2016.

The California Republican previously said he wanted to know exactly who was employing Mifsud when he spoke with George Papadopoulos, a former adviser to then-candidate Donald Trump.

“If the FBI does in fact have transcripts of Papadopoulos talking to anyone … I think Congress, and the American people, have a right to know this because in fact we paid for it, and we had to deal with this for two and a half years. We had to suffer through this,” he told Maria Bartiromo on “Sunday Morning Futures.”

Mifsud largely has vanished from public eye after his name began surfacing in news stories.

SPECULATION RAGES OVER PAPADOPOULOS TIPSTER’S ROLE

Last week, Nunes sent a letter addressed to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, CIA Director Gina Haspel, National Security Agency Director Paul Nakasone and FBI Director Chris Wray. It asks them to hand over all information they had on Mifsud by May 10.

Nunes told Bartiromo he was concerned about how the Mueller report seemed to “cherry-pick” information regarding Mifsud.

“They pick a news story, and then they cherry-pick from it,” he said. “So, they use it partly to describe where Mifsud worked. But then they fail to say in that same story that they have given support to by using it in the Mueller dossier.”

Mifsud is a crucial figure in the report: Mueller’s report stated that Mifsud was the one who told Papadopoulos in April 2016 that the Russians had “dirt” in the form of emails that could damage Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.

Nunes told Bartiromo: “They cherry pick it and they don’t use that Mifsud was described as a Western intelligence asset.”

He added that anyone simply could use the Internet to get a fuller picture of Mifsud: “You’ll find pictures of him with many foreign dignitaries, foreign leaders.”

Nunes told Bartiromo it’s the job of Republicans to get to the bottom of Mifsud’s identity: “How is it that we spent $30-plus million on (the Mueller report) as taxpayers. Yeah. And they can’t even tell us who Joseph Mifsud is… we’re getting to the bottom of this.”

Larry Kudlow fires back at Cory Booker’s claim Obama deserves credit for economic recovery

National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow denounced Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., Sunday after the 2020 White House candidate said President Trump was “taking credit for a recovery that started under [former President Barack] Obama.”

“What Mr. Booker and some others are saying is simply not true factually,” Kudlow told Fox News’ “America’s News HQ”.

Kudlow spoke two days after the publication of the April jobs report, which showed that the American economy added 263,000 jobs last month while the unemployment rate fell to 3.6 percent, the lowest since 1969. Despite the rosy numbers, Booker insisted that the boom’s effects were not being felt across all economic levels.

BRIAN BRENBERG: THIS IS THE STRONGEST RECOVERY WE’VE SEEN IN A DECADE, AMERICA

“You have people on my block – I’m the only presidential candidate that lives in a low-income inner-city neighborhood. Talk to folks, and they’ll tell you: ‘I have to work two jobs just to try to keep myself in housing. And, by the way, that housing isn’t reflected in any of my family,'” Booker said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “Americans are struggling. Their wages are too low … for the last four decades, I don’t think they’ve budged that much … We’ve got to make sure that this is a shared recovery, because, right now, it definitely is not.”

Kudlow emphatically begged to differ.

“I’m just gonna use the damn facts,” he told Fox News’ Leland Vittert. “On the wage front, [average hourly earnings are] rising 3.2 percent overall. The bottom [poorest] quarter [of workers], 4.4 percent increase, the top quarter, 3.5 percent [increase].”

“First of all, both are good and a rising tide is lifting all boats,” Kudlow added. “But the point I’m making is, it’s the blue collar people that have the fastest job expansion and it’s the blue collar people that have the best wage growth.”

Kudlow reacted to the April jobs report in a video posted on the White House’s Instagram page Friday afternoon.

“Wow! Low unemployment, high jobs, high wages, big consumer confidence, major productivity and no inflation,” said an enthusiastic Kudlow while gesturing toward the camera. “It’s totally awesome. We’re killing it on the economy.”

“I don’t know how I had the energy to do that,” Kudlow said Sunday. “I just walked out and, I don’t know, man, let her rip. These are blowout numbers. The economy is going great guns and POTUS’ [Trump’s] policies, to be perfectly honest, his policies to rebuild this economy have entered us into a tremendous prosperity cycle. And I don’t see any end to it right now.”

A 14-year-old recently featured in Sports Illustrated as one of six teens “who will rule the future in sports,” died after he was shot at a party in Illinois on Saturday night, according to police.

The shooting killed Jaylon McKenzie, 14, an eighth-grade student at Central Junior High School in Belleville, Ill., not far from East St. Louis. A 15-year-old girl was critically injured, police said, adding that no arrests have been made.

McKenzie’s mother said witnesses told her he was hit by a stray bullet after a fight broke out at the party, The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.

“It’s so hard to fathom that someone took my baby from me because he dreamed so big,” McKenzie’s mother, Sukeena Gunner, told the Post-Dispatch. “I can just remember him coming into my room and telling my husband to call his name. ‘We have a 5-6 running back, Jayyyyy-lonnnn MacKenzieeee.’ And he would run into the room after his name was called.”

WORKER FOUND DEAD AFTER ILLINOIS PLANT EXPLOSION; 2 OTHERS BELIEVED DEAD AS RESCUERS SUSPEND SEARCH

In November, McKenzie told Sports Illustrated his goal was to “Make the NFL” and his dream was to be “a star in L.A.—for the Rams or the Chargers.”

The shooting unfolded in Venice, Ill. around 11:40 p.m. Saturday night, Illinois State Police told Fox News.

Officers were responding to a report of a disturbance and shots fired at a large party. They said when they arrived they found McKenzie and the other teen were shot and needed medical attention. Police said officers immediately began life-saving measures before both victims were transported to nearby hospitals.

McKenzie was pronounced dead a short time after arriving at the hospital.

Gunner told the St. Louis Post Dispatch that her son had been to his school’s eighth-grade dance earlier that night. She said he later went to another school’s post-prom party in Venice.

On Sunday, State Rep. LaToya Greenwood, D-East St. Louis, posted a picture of McKenzie on her Facebook page and wrote, “There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition, and of unspeakable love. #JaylonMcKenzie”

McKenzie played running back, receiver and defensive back. According to Sports Illustrated, he drew national attention in August when he caught five passes for 161 yards and two touchdowns to help the East team to a victory at the NFL’s 8th Grade All-American Game in Ohio.

He’d drawn the attention of college football coaches at the age of 14, the Post-Dispatch reported. He also reportedly got his first verbal scholarship offer in December from the University of Missouri and the University of Illinois reached out to him about a week ago.

More than 600 rockets fired at Israel from Gaza in less than 24 hours, death toll rises

Westlake Legal Group more-than-600-rockets-fired-at-israel-from-gaza-in-less-than-24-hours-death-toll-rises More than 600 rockets fired at Israel from Gaza in less than 24 hours, death toll rises Talia Kaplan fox-news/world/world-regions/israel fox-news/world fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/world fnc c9cdb0e5-8f4b-5ac3-85ec-4108e0ba3203 article

The death toll continues to rise Sunday on both sides of the Israel-Gaza border in one of the most intense flare-ups of violence in the region in years, shattering a month-long lull in attacks.

Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip fired more than 600 rockets into southern Israel in less than 24 hours, killing at least four Israelis and leaving several more in critical condition.

Israel has retaliated with dozens of airstrikes against militant sites in Gaza. More than a dozen Palestinians, including a pregnant woman and her 14-month old niece, have also been killed.

According to Haaretz, four Israeli men and 16 Palestinians were killed so far since tensions increased along the border on Friday. Four Israelis were also wounded as rockets fell on the Israeli south on Saturday.

ISRAEL STRIKES GAZA TARGETS IN RESPONSE TO PALESTINIAN HEAVY ROCKET FIRE

On Sunday, the Israeli military said a misfired Palestinian rocket — not an Israeli airstrike — caused the death of a pregnant Palestinian woman and her infant niece in the Gaza Strip, disputing the Gaza Health Ministry’s statement that Israel is to blame.

According to the Israeli military, Israeli forces struck dozens of targets in Gaza, including militant sites that were concealed in residential areas. Israeli military spokesman Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus said Israel’s strikes hit a variety of “high-quality” militant sites, including commanders’ homes in which militant activity was observed.

Israeli medical officials said an early morning rocket from Gaza Sunday killed an Israeli father of four, 58-year-old Moshe Agadi, outside a home in the coastal city of Ashkelon.

Agadi reportedly died of his injuries after he was struck by shrapnel, marking the first Israeli casualty from rocket fire since the 2014 war with Hamas militants.

According to The Barzilai Medical Center in Israel, a 49-year-old man was killed when a rocket hit an Ashkelon factory, while another man in Israel was killed when his vehicle was hit by a projectile near a small border community called Yad Mordechai.

Israeli medical officials also said a Thai laborer was critically injured in a rocket strike later on Sunday.

ISRAEL SAYS 2 SOLDIERS WOUNDED BY GUNFIRE FROM GAZA

By late afternoon, the Israeli military said militants had fired more than 600 rockets into Israel, and that Israeli forces had launched about 260 airstrikes against militant targets in Gaza.

Palestinian officials identified one of the militants who was killed as Hamas commander Hamed al-Khoudary, who Israel said was integral in transferring Iranian money to the militant group.

In Israel, sirens warning of incoming attacks were heard along the border region overnight and throughout the day. Schools were canceled and roads were closed as many Israelis reportedly hid in bomb shelters.

According to Haaretz, the Israeli army said it expects the flare-up to continue in the coming days. A Hamas political source told the news outlet that the group decided to take serious steps against Israel because the Israeli government has been slow in implementing understandings reached between the two parties.

In Gaza, large explosions thundered across the blockaded enclave throughout the night and plumes of smoke rose into the air.

One of the airstrikes hit a commercial and residential building that housed the office of Turkey’s official Anadolu news agency.

The Israeli military said its Iron Dome defense system intercepted more than 150 of the projectiles from Gaza, but several still managed to get through.

The sudden violence has ended a month-long lull as Egyptian mediators had been trying to negotiate a long-term cease-fire.

Israel and Hamas are bitter enemies that have fought three wars since 2007 when the Islamic militant group seized control of Gaza. There have been also been several smaller flare-ups, most recently, in late March.
