gulftoday.ae | Gaza truce under fire after Israeli strike kills PalestinianGAZA CITY: Israeli air strikes on Wednesday killed a Palestinian, prompting a flurry of mortar fire into southern Israel just days after armed groups agreed to a temporary truce.
Heightened tensions in and around the Gaza border raised fears of a fresh descent into violence scarcely 48 hours after Hamas had agreed to end rocket fire on southern Israel - on condition the Israeli air force also stopped its raids.
Ismael Al Ismar, 34, a leader in the Al Quds Brigades - the armed wing of Islamic Jihad - died when a missile ploughed into his car in the southern city of Rafah near the Egyptian border, witnesses and the group said.
An Israeli military spokesman confirmed the strike.
What kind of one sided Truce is that then?
