The armed wing of the Palestinian militant group Hamas says six of its fighters have died in an Israeli air strike on the Gaza strip. If confirmed, it would be the deadliest attack on the group since an eight-day conflict with Israel in 2012. Three others died in separate Israeli air strikes in response to at least 20 rocket attacks from Gaza. Tensions in the region are high following the murder of Palestinian teenager Mohammed Abu Khdair.
