Palestinian killed in Israeli air strike: medics


At least one Palestinian was killed Wednesday in Israeli air strikes on smuggling tunnels along the Gaza-Egypt border, Palestinian medics and security officials said.

The raids followed a morning of Palestinian rocket and mortar fire into Israel and came as Israeli and Palestinian leaders were to meet in Jerusalem for peace talks opposed by Gaza’s Islamist Hamas leaders.

Earlier a rocket and eight mortar rounds were fired from the Gaza Strip into southern Israel, the Israeli military said, with the rocket striking near the port city of Ashkelon.
