Israel strike in Gaza kills one

One person has been killed and two more wounded in an Israeli air strike on a car on Sunday. Israeli officials have confirmed the attack in Gaza, saying it was targeted against suspected militants.

It is the first airstrike Israel has carried out since Hamas took control of Gaza.

The attack comes on the eve of a summit in Egypt where the participants are expected to discuss ways of supporting Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas whose Fatah party was ousted from the troubled region earlier this month.
