Palestinian witnesses said one of the Israeli missiles landed on a house owned by Al-Massri family, wounding a boy and a young man.

Meanwhile, witnesses said that a group of gunmen fired a home- made rocket at Israel from eastern Beit Hanoun and the Israeli army responded with artillery fire, killing a gunman.

Medical sources identified the dead as Mohammed Al-Kafarana, while other security sources said Al-Kafarana was a member of the Islamic Jihad movement.

Islamic Hamas movement, which controls Gaza, maintains a ceasefire with Israel since the end of Gaza war in January 2009. However, Hamas failed to broker full commitment from other factions.

Gaza's northern and eastern borders with Israel witness violent incidents from time to time as the Jewish state imposed a 300- meter-wide buffer zone along the borders.
