Israeli troops killed a Palestinian infant during fighting Wednesday in the Gaza Strip. The shooting took place after Palestinian gunmen opened fire on soldiers guarding a post near the settlement of Neveh Dekalim. The death of the 1-year-old is “a very unfortunate incident,” a spokeswoman for the Israel Defense Force said in a statement.
