Israel air strike in Gaza kills child, wounds 15: medic

GAZA CITY: An Israeli air strike on a house in Gaza City killed a young girl and wounded 15 other people late Tuesday, local emergency services spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra said.

Israel carried out a series of air strikes across the Gaza Strip in response to a string of rocket attacks on southern Israel that torpedoed a 24-hour ceasefire meant to hold until 2100 GMT.
