Israel says its fighter jets have struck 20 targets in the Gaza Strip, killing one Palestinian and injuring eight others.
According to Gaza’s Health Ministry, Naji Ahmad al-Zaneen, 25, was killed in the attack in northern Gaza early on Wednesday.
Among the wounded are six children who were on their way to school in Deir al-Balah in central Gaza.
Palestinian sources said several rockets fired by Israeli warplanes targeted sites south of Gaza City, while another blast rocked the central region of the Gaza Strip. A powerful explosion also rocked Khan Younis in southern Gaza.
The Israeli army stated that it carried out air raids in response to a rocket that hit a home in Beersheba in southern Israel, causing damage but no injuries.
In a joint statement with allied armed groups, Hamas said it rejected all irresponsible attempts to undermine Egyptian efforts to broker a new long-term truce.
