Israeli air strike kills Palestinian in Gaza

A strike by an Israeli drone killed a Palestinian man in the Gaza Strip, bringing to two the number who have died in Saturday attacks, Palestinian medics said.

Khaled al-Burai, 25, was killed east of Jabaliya, in the north of the Gaza Strip, a medical source said.

Two other Palestinians survived the strike, witnesses said.

Earlier, a medic said a six-year-old boy was killed and his father and another man wounded east of the city of Khan Yunis, but the Israeli military denied it was responsible.

Witnesses said the raids were among at least six launched on the territory on Saturday. At least five Palestinians were wounded, medical sources said.
