An Israeli air strike has injured four Palestinians in Gaza City. A spokesman for the military said the planes had targeted a weapons storage facility in response to rocket firings from the Hamas-ruled territory.

The injured, which included a woman, were taken to hospital – the Palestinians say they were hurt by shell fragments fired at an empty house.

And in a different incident an Israeli soldier was killed as a result of so called “friendly fire”.

Two separate forces had been alerted to a suspected infiltration along the Gaza border but neither new the other was in the area. The soldier died as one team opened fire on the other.
