A rocket fired from the Gaza Strip fatally injured an Israeli civilian woman early Monday evening, witnesses and first aid officials said.

The woman's house, in a community just east of the salient, suffered a direct hit from the missile. Paramedics who rushed to the scene were unable to resuscitate her.

The rocket attack comes as Egyptian security chief Omar Suleiman was in Israel for talks with Israeli leaders on a truce between Israel and Gaza militants, the dpa reported.
