Israeli attack in Gaza Strip kills several, wounds at least 20
Palestinian medical sources told the Associated Press today Israeli fire killed at least two Palestinians and wounded dozens in cross-border violence in Gaza Strip.
Dr. Ayman al-Sahbani of Gaza's Shifa hospital said fatalities were all civilian and children were among those injured. Witnesses described an explosion followed by tank and machine gun fire, reported AP.
Witnesses also told Lebanon's Naharnet that militants had fired a rocket at an Israeli vehicle, reportedly provoking the deadly return fire from Israel. Naharnet cited Hamas' emergency services spokesman, Yahya Khader, as confirming that two people had been killed and saying six of those wounded had been seriously hurt.
The Israeli military has not commented on the incident, but AP said they were investigating.
