An Israeli airstrike in the Gaza Strip killed at least two Palestinians, but failed to kill the targeted Hamas leader. Sharaf Farwana survived Thursday night’s strike, but his 25-year-old brother and an 8-year-old girl reportedly were killed. Also Thursday, Hamas’ military wing vowed revenge for an operation earlier Thursday in the Gaza Strip that killed six Palestinians.
