Gaza rocket kills one as Israel say target Hamas leaders

Israel's armed forces may attack the Hamas leadership as part of their offensive in the Gaza Strip, a military spokeswoman said on Saturday.

Asked if an escalation of the assault could include targeted strikes against Hamas leaders, the spokeswoman, Major Avital Leibovitch, told reporters: "Anything belonging to Hamas could be a target. You can interpret that as you like."

A rocket fired by Palestinian militants in the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip killed one person in southern Israel on Saturday, medics said.

Another two people in the Israeli town of Netivot were moderately wounded, the Magen David Adom ambulance service said.
