    One relative of the victim said the shooting was indiscriminate.
     
    He said: "He [an Israeli soldier] shot the boy inside and then the two girls and my wife in the other room. In every room he opened fire."

    She said: "My mother told the soldier to stay away from him, from my father. And then he shot him and my mother yelled 'you bastard' and then he shot my mother and then shot and wounded my brother Rajeh.

    Earlier on Wednesday, Israeli aircraft struck a group of armed fighters in the northern Gaza Strip, killing one man and wounding another, Palestinian officials said.
     
    The army said it had identified a group of fighters planting explosives in northern Gaza and targeted them from the air.
     
    The Hamas movement said in a radio broadcast that the dead man belonged to the group. It was the first Israeli air strike since Friday.
