Fragments from a missile fired by an Israeli aircraft killed a 10-year-old Palestinian boy in Hamas-controlled Gaza on Saturday, medical officials said, hours after militants launched rockets into Israel.

A statement by the Israeli military said aircraft had targeted four militant training camps belonging to Hamas after four missiles landed in open areas in southern Israel late on Friday. No casualties were reported from the rocket strikes.

Residents of Beit Lahiya in the northern Gaza Strip said Yassin Abu Khoussa died after missile debris hit his home, which is situated next to a militant training camp. His six-year-old sister was wounded, the medical officials added.
