Palestinian killed in West Bank, airstrike hits Gaza

    The Israeli military said on Saturday that its planes had retaliated against the Gaza Strip and that its troops in the occupied West Bank had shot dead a suspected Palestinian assailant who had been killed by Palestinian officials. An Israeli military spokesman said soldiers were trying to disperse clashes between Israeli settlers and Palestinians from a nearby village in the West Bank. Troops then saw a man throw an explosive device at them from the rooftop and “responded with fire against the suspect to eliminate the danger,” the spokesman said. In Gaza, Israeli warplanes struck a weapons factory and a rocket launcher in response to incendiary balloons sent from the Palestinian enclave to Israel on Saturday, the military said. A man has been seriously injured, Gaza doctors say.
