Gaza fighting kills 15, injures 20
by UPI

JERUSALEM -- At least 15 Palestinian militants and civilians were killed in Israeli attacks Tuesday in Gaza City and an Ecuadorian farm volunteer was killed by a sniper.

Palestinian authorities said the Israeli ground and air attacks wounded at least 20 others, three of them critically, Haaretz reported. There were no reports of Israeli injuries.

The Israeli air and tanks attacks that began Monday night were in response to rocket attacks on Israel and targeted launch sites, the military said.

Among those killed was the 24-year-old son of Hamas leader Mahmoud Zahar, the last surviving founder of the Islamist group, Ynetnews.com reported.

Elsewhere, a Palestinian sniper fired on a kibbutz across the border and hit a volunteer from Ecuador tending potatoes in a field, CNN reported. Ambulance workers said the unidentified 20-year-old man from Quito died soon after they arrived.

Hamas' military wing claimed responsibility for the shooting, Ynetnews said.
