"Gaza teen killed in Israeli air raid: medics"

GAZA CITY (AFP) — A teenager was killed and eight other people were wounded in a dawn raid by Israeli warplanes on the Gaza Strip, Palestinian medical services said on Saturday.

The 14-year-old girl died when a missile fired by an Israeli aircraft hit her house in Beit Lahiya north of Gaza City, they said, adding that the eight others were hurt in the same incident.

Witnesses also reported Israeli soldiers supported by tanks detaining people in the area.

An Israeli military spokeswoman confirmed there had been an operation, saying that "the air force launched two raids on Saturday morning against armed elements in the northern Gaza Strip."

"There were also exchanges of fire, but none of our people were hit," she added.

Later the spokeswoman said that "the operation in the north of the Gaza Strip ended by mid-morning Saturday."

Also overnight, two members of Islamic Jihad were seriously wounded in another Israeli air strike against northern Gaza, the militant movement said in a statement.

At least 437 people, most of them Palestinian, have been killed since peace talks between the Israelis and Palestinians were resumed at a US-sponsored talks in Annapolis in November, according to an AFP count.
