A Palestinian militant has been killed by Israeli forces in the Gaza Strip.
The army says the man, a member of Hamas, was planning to launch mortar shells into Israel - a claim that has been disputed.
Nearly 20 people have now been killed in Gaza by Israel in less than a week, mostly Hamas gunmen. Israel says it is responding to security threats.
The incident comes as medical officials in Gaza say hospitals are beginning to run out of vital fuel supplies.
Israel says its actions in Gaza are a response to security threats, including the regular firing of rockets into its territory.
But it is not just military pressure that Israel is exerting on Gaza. Sanctions have been imposed as well.
These include the reduction of fuel supplies upon which Gaza depends. On Sunday, the Fuel Companies Association there said it refused a delivery after it was offered just one-quarter of the normal amount it receives.
The association's chairman said accepting such low supplies would amount to participating in what he called "collective punishment by Israel".
Officials say most petrol stations in Gaza have shut, and that medical patients are now at risk because fuel supplies at hospitals - vital for running generators - are running out.
There has been good news for some, though: Israel allowed around 250 people to leave Gaza for Egypt.
Most either study or work abroad, but had been trapped since June, following the Hamas takeover of the territory, when Israel imposed strict travel restrictions.
Several thousand people, needing to get out of Gaza, have registered with the Israeli authorities.
They include medical patients, some of whom have died in recent weeks, waiting for treatment only available outside Gaza. ( BBC )
