Palestinian militants in the Gaza strip on Saturday fired a barrage of rockets at Israel, which responded with strikes that killed a Palestinian, officials said, shattering a fragile ceasefire. Israel said around 90 rockets were fired from the Palestinian enclave and its air defences intercepted dozens of them. The army said it had targeted two rocket launchers in Gaza with an air strike in response and its tanks had hit a number of military posts used by Hamas, the Islamist movement that rules the territory.
