Israel air raid kills one in Gaza

An Israeli air strike on Gaza killed one Palestinian and wounded two on Wednesday evening after rocket fire from the territory on southern Israel, emergency services said.

The strike, which hit the northern Gaza Strip, came little more than a week after a Palestinian unity government was sworn in, replacing separate administrations in Gaza, run by Hamas, and in the West Bank run by loyalists of president Mahmud Abbas.
