Israel intensifies Gaza action
Israel has begun fresh air strikes in the Gaza Strip after pledging to intensify its military offensive on the territory that has killed 51 Palestinians in two weeks.
One Palestinian was killed and four others wounded in a series of Israeli air strikes in the northern industrial zone of Bait Hanun, medics said on Tuesday.
The Israeli military confirmed an air raid in the Bait Hanun area of northern Gaza, the site of two earlier strikes on Tuesday.
The dead man was named Ahmed Shahid, who was struck by a missile fired towards a car, the sources said.
Israeli aircraft also carried out two overnight air strikes against a bridge in the northern Gaza Strip and against a “gunman” west of the Karni transit point for goods entering and leaving the Palestinian territory, a spokesman said.
