Gaza, July 14 (JMCC & Reuters) - Israeli army shelling killed a Palestinian woman and wounded five of her relatives in the central Gaza Strip
on Tuesday, hospital officials said.
The woman's name was Nimeh Abu Saadeh and she was 42-years-old, said medical sources.
Asked about the incident in the village of Juhor
, which is near Gaza's boundary with Israel
, a military spokeswoman said forces opened fire at Palestinians suspected of mounting an attack. She did not immediately elaborate.
Since Israel's Gaza offensive
18 months ago, cross-border violence has largely abated. But there are occasional rocket and mortar salvoes by Palestinians, usually claimed by militant groups unaligned with the dominant Islamist Hamas
movement. (Reporting by Saleh Salem; Writing by Dan Williams; Editing by Jon Hemming)
