Officials: Gaza man killed in Israeli airstrike

Palestinian officials say Israeli airstrikes have killed a security guard in the Gaza Strip.

The security officials in Gaza say 71-year-old Abdelkareem Abu Zeituneh was guarding an orchard when his trailer was hit. They say three other people were wounded in Sunday's airstrike.

The Israeli military said in a statement that aircraft targeted tunnels and a weapons factory in response to rocket fire on southern Israel.
