Israeli airstrike hits Gaza club, kills 1
Israeli warplanes hit a sports club run by Islamic Jihad in the northern Gaza Strip early Thursday, killing a Palestinian and wounding nearly 10 others, witnesses and medical sources said, Xinhua reported.
Meanwhile, a medical spokesman said a 21-year-old Palestinian died in the hospital shortly after he was wounded in an Israeli airstrike that targeted a smuggling tunnel beneath Gaza's borders with Egypt.
The attack comes in a renewed circle of violence that started a week ago.
On Wednesday evening, Israeli airplanes killed a Palestinian militant in a raid on his car in Gaza City.
The violence resumed early Thursday when an Israeli airplane fired a missile at a car carrying an Islamic Jihad militant and killed him in Rafah city. This attack came hours after Gaza's Hamas rulers said a ceasefire has been reached through mediators.
Militants resumed rocket attacks from Gaza after the attack that killed the Islamic Jihad man in Rafah.
The broader violence started a week ago when Israel accused Palestinian militants of being behind deadly attacks in the southern Israeli Red Sea resort of Eilat.
At least 15 Palestinians were killed in Israeli airstrikes before Hamas said that Egypt and the United Nations succeeded in brokering an agreement to stop the Israeli operations.
