Israeli Air Strike Kills Palestinian in Gaza

An Israeli air strike on the Hamas-controlled and blockaded Gaza Strip has claimed the life of a Palestinian.

Another Palestinian was also wounded in the attack, a Press TV correspondent reported on Wednesday.

Israel has continued to close all border crossings to the Gaza Strip for more than 3 years. The illegal Israeli-imposed blockade on the Gaza Strip, which has been steadily tightened since June 2007, has had a disastrous impact on the humanitarian and economic situation in the coastal enclave.

Some 1.5 million people are being denied their basic rights, including freedom of movement, and their rights to appropriate living conditions, work, health and education. Poverty and unemployment rates stand at approximately 80% and 60% respectively in the Gaza Strip.
