JERUSALEM: Gaza militants on Saturday fired a barrage of dozens of rockets at Israel, which responded with strikes that killed a Palestinian, officials said, as a fragile ceasefire again faltered. Israel said around 50 rockets were fired from the Palestinian enclave and its air defense systems intercepted dozens of them.
The army said it had targeted two rocket launchers in Gaza with an airstrike in response. According to Gazan security, the source said later that a series of Israeli strikes hit at least three separate areas of the Gaza Strip and that three "resistance fighters" were wounded. It was not yet clear if there were casualties on the Israeli side. The escalation follows the most violent clashes along the Gaza border in weeks on Friday.
Imad Nseir, 22, was killed in Beit Hanoun after Israeli warplanes targeted multiple areas in the besieged enclave on Saturday morning after dozens of rockets were fired from Gaza into southern Israel. The latest flare-up comes after Israeli forces killed four Palestinians in two separate incidents on Friday.
