Israeli Airstrikes Kill 10 in Worst Fighting in Two Months

Israeli aircraft struck the Gaza Strip and killed at least 10 Palestinians, and one Israeli died in a Palestinian rocket attack, in the worst round of violence between the two sides in more than two months.

The latest strike today came hours after the Islamic Jihad movement, which had been firing rockets and mortars into Israel, accepted an Egyptian-brokered cease-fire. The Israeli air attack targeted a group of Palestinians preparing to launch a rocket, an Israeli army spokesman said, speaking anonymously in accordance with military regulations.
