Israeli Airstrikes Claim Seven Lives In Gaza

The recently renewed violence in the Mideast claimed more lives Sunday as Israeli strikes killed seven people in Gaza and a Palestinian attack on a border crossing wounded four Israeli civilians.

The Palestinian victims included an 18-month-old, said a spokesman for the Ministry of Health, Ashraf al-Qidra.

The four Israelis were hit at the border crossing near the town of Erez. The Israel Defense Forces tweeted that several rockets and mortars struck the checkpoint.
One civilian was moderately wounded and three were injured, the IDF said, without elaborating on their conditions.

The civilians had come to the crossing to aid people needing humanitarian assistance, Israel’s Ministry of Defense said in a written statement. The crossing remains closed.
