One killed in Palestinian rocket fire from Gaza: emergency service
Jerusalem, (AFP) One man was pulled dead from the ruins of a building in southern Israel hit by one of dozens of rockets fired from the Gaza Strip, an emergency service said Tuesday.
It was the first confirmed death caused by the barrage of rocket fire from Gaza since Monday afternoon in a flare-up following a deadly Israeli special forces operation in the enclave.
A woman also recovered from the building in Ashkelon was in a critical state, said the emergency services organisation United Hatzalah.
The man killed was around 40 years old, according to media reports. (AFP
