Israel shells house, killing one Gazan

An Israeli tank shell struck a house and killed a man Monday in the northern Gaza Strip, Palestinian officials said.

Earlier, Israel launched air strikes two positions in the territory.

Hamas security officials said the 22-year-old man was killed by an Israeli tank shell fired from across the border. Dr. Moaiya Hassanain of the Gaza Health Ministry identified him as a farmer.

Palestinian officials said aircraft hit a Hamas security compound in southern Gaza that had already been struck three times during Israel's recent Gaza assault and a rocket-launching pad in a field in northern Gaza.

Separately, an Israeli gunboat fired a shell into a Palestinian fishing boat off the northern Gaza coast, Palestinian officials said.

Palestinian officials said the fishing boat was damaged but no one was injured.

Israel killed more than 1,300 Palestinians, a third of them children in the 22-day military aggression in Decemcer 2008 on Gaza and wounded 5,300 Palestinians, and Gaza infrastructure suffered massive damage totaling at least 476 million dollars, according to Palestinian medics and officials.
