Head of the French consular affairs in the Gaza Strip and his family were injured in an overnight Israeli airstrike on the beleaguered Palestinian territory.

Majdi Shakoura told AFP on Monday that the windows of their home west of Gaza City were shattered when an Israeli warplane hit a Hamas naval base north of Gaza and that the flying glass shards cut his left leg and injured his 13-year-old daughter.

He also said that his pregnant wife lost her baby due to the shock of the attack.

According to medical sources, a Palestinian was killed and six others, including two policemen, were injured in the attack on Sunday.

An Israeli army spokeswoman confirmed that an air force fighter jet attacked the Gaza Strip.
