Israeli air strike kills Gaza militant: medics

GAZA (Reuters) - An Israeli air strike killed a Hamas gunman and wounded two other Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, medical workers said, after Gaza militants fired dozens of rockets into southern Israel on Wednesday.

An Israeli military spokesman said the air strike hit a group of militants who had fired mortars at Israel.

A six-month truce between Israel and Hamas Islamists who control the Gaza Strip ended on Friday.
