Israeli troops launch air strikes
PALESTINE: Israeli troops shot and killed a Palestinian man on
Tuesday in the Gaza Strip as he came near to the border with Israel,
Palestinian medics and witnesses said.
The shooting came hours after Palestinian medics reported that a
Palestinian was killed and seven wounded in at least four overnight
Israeli air strikes across Gaza.
The Israeli military said its aircraft had targeted four areas in the
Gaza Strip in response to the firing of a Grad rocket from the
Palestinian territory into southern Israel.
The man killed near the border fence with Israel was identified by
his family as Mohammed al-Majdalali, aged 22. An earlier report from
medics and witnesses said he was 17. AFP
