Gaza City, Apr 5 (AFP) A Palestinian was killed by an Israeli air strike on the Gaza border today, the health ministry in the Palestinian enclave said, as tensions increased ahead of new protests.

The health ministry did not identify the man but said he died in Shifa Hospital in Gaza City after being targeted by an Israeli strike near the border.

The Israeli army earlier said an aircraft had “targeted an armed terrorist adjacent to the security fence”.(AFP) AMS AMS
