Palestinian officials say that an Israeli strike has killed one and wounded two in northern Gaza.
Two large explosions were heard on early Sunday morning. Hamas officials say an Israeli navy boat fired at a militant training ground north of Gaza City. Hospital official Adham Abu Salmia confirms one dead and two wounded, one critically. The Israeli military said it was looking into the report. Israel often targets Gaza militants in the early hours either preparing or training for attacks. The last such strike took place more than a month ago.
The incident comes as Israeli-Palestinian peace talks are at a standstill. The sides are trying to find a compromise on Israeli settlement building that will allow the month-old talks to continue.
