Israeli air strikes in the Gaza Strip killed four Hamas militants and five Palestinian civilians on Friday as a fresh spike in cross-border violence continued for a second day.

The Israel Defense Forces said it had “identified two terrorist squads from Hamas” and hit them from the ground and air.

An elderly Palestinian and two women died when their house in Khan Younis was hit and three other women were wounded, hospital sources said.
