Eight killed in covert Israeli action in Gaza


Seven Palestinians, including a local militant commander, have been killed during a covert Israeli operation in Gaza, Palestinian officials say.

An Israeli soldier was also killed and another wounded, the Israeli military said, after a firefight erupted.

Palestinians said an Israeli unit travelling in a civilian vehicle had killed the Hamas commander.

Sirens later sounded in communities across southern Israel and rockets were fired from Gaza, without causing harm.
