Five suspected Palestinian militants have been killed in a raid by Israeli forces in the Gaza strip. The Hamas movement, which controls Gaza, says Israeli forces backed by tanks and warplanes launched a raid in the north of the territory. Local residents say a border fence was penetrated near the town of Jabalya.
The Israeli army has been carrying out regular raids in Gaza, trying to stop militants from firing rockets into Israel. Hamas said it was responsible for a suicide bombing that killed a woman in Israel on Monday.
