JERUSALEM (AP) — A fresh wave of fighting erupted between Israeli forces and Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip on Sunday, leaving an Israeli soldier and seven Palestinians dead, just as Israel and Gaza's Hamas rulers had appeared to be making progress toward ratcheting down months of border violence. It was not immediately clear what set off the sudden, rare late-night burst of violence. In a statement early Monday, the Israeli military said an officer was killed and another one was moderately injured during "an operational activity" in southeast Gaza Strip in which an exchange of gunfire was evolved. The operation had ended and the families of the soldiers were notified, it added.
