The Israeli military says it carried out an airstrike in the Gaza Strip today (December 24, 2013) in response to the deadly shooting of an Israeli civilian who was working on a border fence, according to the CBN (Christian Broadcast Network) website.
The military gave no immediate details on the target of today's airstrike, and there was no word on casualties.
It did say that the Israeli man was shot while he was doing maintenance work on the border fence. Hospital officials later pronounced him dead.
This incident was the latest in a string of Palestinian attacks on Israeli targets in recent days.
