Israeli tanks fired two shells Tuesday at the home of the Hamas lawmaker who organized a women's protest that allowed gunmen to escape from a northern Gaza mosque under Israeli siege, killing one person and wounding several others, Hamas officials said Tuesday. The lawmaker, Jamila Shanti, said she was told her sister-in-law was killed in the tank shelling, east of the town of Jebaliya. The army said a tank opened fire after Palestinian gunmen launched two rocket-propelled grenades at soldiers. It said it was responding to the attack and did not target a specific house.
