Israeli missile hits poultry farm in north Gaza

Dec. 10, 2011 5:06 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 11, 2011 12:19 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- An Israeli missile hit a poultry and livestock farm in Beit Hanoun on Saturday, a Ma'an correspondent said.

The farm in northern Gaza belonged to Ramadan Abu Ghazaleh. A number of animals were killed and extensive material damage was caused to the structure.

Violence has flared between Gaza and Israel after Israeli airstrikes killed an Islamic Jihad fighter on Wednesday, and two affiliates of Fatah and Hamas' armed wings on Thursday.

A further airstrike on Gaza City on Friday morning hit a site of Hamas' armed group, and flattened a nearby house killing the owner; the man's 12-year-old son was pronounced dead hours later.

The man's wife and five other children were wounded, medics said.

Militants responded with a barrage of rockets that struck southern Israel on Thursday and Friday, without causing injuries.

Cairo is trying to renew a truce to restore calm between its neighbors, Egypt's ambassador to the Palestinian Authority Yasser Othman told Ma'an on Thursday.
