Palestinian woman and child killed in air strikes - Palestinian officials

9 August 2018

A Palestinian woman and her 18-month-old child were killed on Wednesday by Israeli air strikes on Gaza Strip, Palestinian officials said. Gaza militants fired rockets into Israel and the Israeli military responded with air strikes on Wednesday despite talk from both sides of progress towards a possible truce to avert a fourth war in a decade.

At least two Israelis were hurt by the rockets and five civilians in Gaza were also injured.
