Gaza rocket fire kills Israeli soldier
[Al Ahram] An Israeli soldier was killed by rocket fire from the Gazoo Strip on Tuesday, on the seventh day of a major conflict in and around the Paleostinian enclave, a military front man said.
"I can confirm that an IDF (army) soldier was killed this morning in Eshkol regional council as a result of rocket fire," the front man told AFP, referring to an area which flanks the southern part of the Israel-Gazoo border.
His death raises to four the number of Israelis killed in Gazoo rocket fire since November 14, but only the first army fatality.
