Israeli Air Strike Kills Palestinian in Gaza

An Israeli airstrike has killed a Palestinian man in the Gaza Strip, east of Gaza City.

The Israeli military says aircraft fired at three Palestinian gunmen who were within meters of the security fence separating the Gaza Strip from Israel.

Palestinians give a different account. A Palestinian militant group, the Popular Resistance Committees, says a bystander was killed when an Israeli helicopter fired at a car carrying several of its fighters.

The violence comes three days before Palestinian parliamentary elections.

Some information for this report was provided by AFP, AP and Reuters.
