GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip
A Palestinian health official says Israeli troops have killed a man and wounded another in the Gaza Strip.
The Israeli military said the shooting Friday happened after dozens of Palestinians hurled rocks and rolled burning tires toward soldiers at the border. The military said soldiers fired warning shots into the air before shooting at the Palestinians.
After a period of relative calm, violence has spiked in recent weeks along the Gaza-Israel border. This week Israel killed a key Gaza militant it blamed for a wave of rocket attacks.
