GAZA, Nov. 14 (Xinhua) -- The Hamas authorities in Gaza complained to Egypt that Israel carried out aerial attacks last night and killed a Hamas officer, a statement from Hamas said Monday.

"We reject the (Israeli) occupation's treachery," the statement said, noting that the attacks took place despite a period of calm that followed days of violence. Egypt helped reach the calmness.

Ihab al-Ghussein, spokesman for Hamas authorities, said that contacts with Egyptian officials "aim at briefing them about the situation to communicate with Israel." He added that Israeli raids "can not happen this way" and that Hamas will "let the blood of our people bleed coldly."

"There are no reasons for this airstrike," al-Ghussein told reporters.

The attack targeted a naval police base in northern Gaza Strip. A Hamas officer was killed and four others were injured.

On Sunday, Israeli reports said Palestinian militants fired a rocket from the Gaza Strip. No Palestinian group claimed responsibility for the rocket fire, which caused no damage or casualties.

In October, Egypt and Hamas authorities persuaded militant groups to restrain after days of cross-border violence.
