An Israeli soldier was killed in a Palestinian mortar attack. Hamas claimed responsibility for Saturday’s attack near the Israeli settlement of Kfar Darom in the Gaza Strip. Hamas officials said they were avenging last Friday’s slaying of Hamas leader Mahmoud Abu Hanoud in an Israeli helicopter attack. Israel retaliated for the mortar attack by launching helicopter missile strikes Sunday, destroying several Palestinian security posts in Gaza.
