"Israeli airstrikes killed a schoolboy and two other Palestinians in the Gaza Strip on Sunday, while Gaza rocket squads fired salvos into southern Israel, deepening the worst round of violence between the sides in more than a year. ... The violence has shattered a months-long lull. It was touched off Friday by an Israeli airstrike that killed the commander of the Popular Resistance Committees militant group, an ally of Gaza’s Hamas rulers. Since then, Israeli airstrikes have killed 16 Gaza militants and two civilians, and Palestinian militants there have fired more than 120 rockets at Israel, seriously wounding two civilians."
