Israeli strikes stoke Gaza tensions

Israeli air strikes in the Gaza Strip have killed 10 Palestinians and wounded 30 others.



    Israeli air strikes have killed 10 people in the Gaza Strip and wounded 30 others.

    The latest attack hit a motorcycle in Northern Gaza. Israel says it was responding to at least 15 rocket attacks launched on Wednesday night.

    Those rockets, Palestinian resistance groups said, were launched in response to Israel's violation of an unofficial truce.

    Both sides accuse each other of aggression, but neither side wants a large-scale conflict.
