A Palestinian woman was killed when Israeli tank shells hit her home east of Khan Yunis in the occupied Gaza Strip on Thursday, the southern city's Nasser hospital said.

The hospital identified the woman as Zeina Al-Amour, 54.

Israeli warplanes have been hitting southern Gaza Strip since Wednesday, injuring four people, including three children.

This is the biggest flare-up in months and raised concerns for a ceasefire between Israel and Gaza's Hamas rulers that has held since the last Israeli offensive on the strip that ended in summer 2014.
