Gaza City (Palestinian Territories), May 4 (AFP) The pregnant mother of a one-year-old baby killed in an Israeli strike in the Gaza Strip on Saturday has also died from her wounds, the health ministry in the strip said. The ministry said in a statement Falestine Abu Arar, 37, had died from the "Israeli targeting east of Gaza".
A ministry spokesman told AFP she was the mother of the baby who died in the same incident earlier as Israel carried out strikes in response to some 200 rockets fired from Gaza. Israel's military said it had no information on the incident. The army said earlier it was only targeting military sites in its response. (AFP) SCY
