Boy, 4, killed by Israeli tank fire in northern Gaza

GAZA CITY: Israeli tank fire killed a four-year-old boy in the northern Gaza Strip on Monday in the first death since the two sides began observing an unofficial lull, Palestinian medics said.

According to emergency services spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra, the child was killed when a shell hit a house to the east of Jabaliya where clashes had recently erupted between Israeli troops and Hamas fighters.
