Ceasefire offer spurned as airstrike kills two in Gaza

Despite an offer of a ceasefire by the Palestinian side if Israel stops its continual attacks on Gaza, the Israelis are intent on racheting up the tension.
GAZA, March 27 (Xinhua) -- The atmosphere of tension was back to the Gaza Strip, after an Israeli airstrike hit the Islamic Jihad movement militants, killing two and injuring three, while the group's armed wing Saraya al-Quds vowed revenge.

Medics and witnesses said two Islamic Jihad militants, Adham Namrooti, 26, and Sabri Assaleya, 22, were killed and three others were wounded early Sunday morning in an Israeli aerial attack on the northern Gaza Strip. more
