Medics: Palestinian injured in attack on northern Gaza

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces attacked a group of people in the northern Gaza Strip early Saturday injuring a Palestinian man near the city of Beit Hanoun, medical officials and witnesses said.

The man, who was not immediately identified, was standing with a group of Palestinians at a junction on the edge of the city when Israeli aircraft opened fire, a Ma'an correspondent reported.

Israel's ongoing bombardments across the coastal enclave have left 14 Palestinians dead since Thursday and 44 injured, among them 11 children, 10 women, and three elderly people, medics say.

Seven Palestinians died late Friday and early Saturday at the height of the assault which Israel says is an ongoing response to a series of attacks Thursday that killed eight Israeli citizens.
