1 Palestinian killed in Israeli airstrike, as daily toll hits 7

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian man was killed in an Israeli airstrike Friday afternoon on al-Zawayida area in the central Gaza Strip, a spokesman for the Palestinian Ministry of Health said.

The death of Ismail Abu Ibteihan brought Friday's death toll to seven, a day after Israeli airstrikes killed 38 across the besieged coastal enclave.

Ahmad Qassim al-Abadlah, 69, died of wounds he sustained on Friday morning in a strike on al-Qarara in Khan Younis.

More than 65 Palestinians have been killed since Israel relaunched its assault on Gaza late Tuesday after a temporary ceasefire fell apart, bringing the total death toll in the six-week assault to more than 2,090.

Negotiations for a long-term truce, meanwhile, have so fair failed to achieve any result, as Israel has refused Palestinian demands that any truce be linked to end to the eight-year siege that has crippled Gaza's economy and reduced 1.8 million people to aid dependency.

Palestinians fear that without an end to the siege, reconstruction for the more than 100,000 who have been rendered homeless as well as for infrastructure and industry will be impossible.
