Israel strikes 'kill 2 in Gaza' as Egypt PM visits
Israeli war planes bombed northern Gaza on Friday morning, killing two as Egyptian Prime Minister Hisham Qandil paid a visit, Palestinian security sources and medics told AFP.
"The occupation's planes bombed a group of citizens in the Nazila area" in northern Gaza, the source said, shortly after Israel accused Hamas of failing to observe a ceasefire during the Egyptian premier's visit.
