Gaza death toll rises to 8 killed in Israeli strikes

GAZA, March 9 (Reuters) – Israeli air raids on the Gaza Strip killed eight Palestinian militants on Friday, in one of the worst flare-ups along the restive border in months, Hamas officials said.

The Israeli military said it had launched air strikes in response to more than 30 rockets fired at Israel by militants. It added the strikes had also been launched to thwart a plan by militants to attack Israel from across the border with Egypt.
