JERUSALEM, Dec. 24 (UPI) -- A 3-year-old Palestinian girl was killed in Israeli air raids in Gaza shortly after an Israeli was killed by sniper fire near the Gaza border, officials said.

A Gaza health ministry spokesman told the Ma'an news agency the girl was killed and her mother and brother were injured in one of the Israeli air force strikes. Three other Palestinians were injured when Israeli tanks shelled sites east of Gaza city, the news agency said.

Israel said its forces undertook a series of strikes against terror targets in Gaza in response to the killing of Israeli civilian worker Salah Abu Latyef, 22, by a Palestinian sniper near the border with Gaza in the afternoon.
