Gaza Strip The Islamic militant group Hamas threatened new attacks Monday after Israel fired a missile into a crowded Gaza street and killed 11 Palestinians. Israel drew U.S. condemnation and Palestinian allegations of massacre after killing 14 Palestinians in a raid on suspected militants in the Gaza Strip.
