Renewed fighting jeopardizes Gaza truce efforts
By Nidal al-Mughrabi and Allyn Fisher-Ilan GAZA/JERUSALEM (Reuters) - An Israeli air strike killed a Palestinian man and wounded seven others on Sunday, medics said, in a third day of renewed fighting that has jeopardized international efforts to achieve a lasting ceasefire in a more than month-old Gaza conflict. Israel refused to send back officials to Egyptian-brokered peace negotiations in Cairo as long as violence along the Israel-Gaza border went on. The head Palestinian delegate on Saturday threatened to quit the talks unless Israel reversed that stance. Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said he saw "very slim" chances of success in efforts to renew a three-day truce that stopped the fighting last Tuesday, only to see the tensions pick up again on Friday.
