First Israeli killed by Gaza rocket fire in week of fighting

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - An Israeli civilian was killed by a rocket fired from the Gaza Strip on Tuesday, the military said, the first Israeli fatality in more than a week of fighting with Palestinian militants.

The Islamist group Hamas that rules Gaza claimed responsibility for launching the short-range rocket that struck an area along the border with Gaza.
