New Israeli strike in Gaza City wounds 18: ministry
At least 18 Palestinians were wounded Thursday as Israel struck a building in central Gaza City, the health ministry in the Palestinian enclave said, after hours of relative calm.

The strike hit a building that Palestinians say housed a cultural center and other offices in the middle of the city, an AFP correspondent said. Israel's military had not commented.

The strike came after a rocket fired from the Gaza Strip hit an open area deep inside Israel near the major city of Beersheba, causing no damage or injuries.
