"Armed men fired" on an Israeli man building a border wall on the Egyptian frontier on Monday, killing one of the workers, and Israeli soldiers shot dead two of men, Israeli military said.

Overnight on Sunday, Israeli aircraft carried out a series of strikes in the besieged Gaza Strip. Medical sources in Gaza said seven people were wounded.

An Israeli military source told Reuters news agency, one of the workmen, an Arab citizen of Israel, was killed by the gunmen.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack, about 30 kilometres (18 miles) from the Gaza Strip.

Soldiers who rushed to the scene killed two of the suspects and searched the Israeli side of the border for more gunmen, the source said.

Israel is building a wall along the frontier with Egypt that it hopes to complete by the end of the year. The barrier will run most of the 266 km (165 miles) from Eilat, on the Red Sea, up to the Gaza Strip.
