GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Spokesmen for Hamas and the Palestinian Authority governments on Tuesday condemned Israeli airstrikes on the Gaza Strip which killed a young girl.

Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri called the airstrikes that killed 3-year-old Hala Abu Sbeikh in central Gaza a "cowardly crime."

Abu Zuhri said Israel was targeting Palestinian families, and that Israeli threats and raids would not deter Palestinian resistance fighters from "doing their duty."

Separately, PA spokesman Ehab Bessaiso also condemned Israel's attacks on the Gaza strip, calling for international intervention to stop them.

Bessaiso said in a statement that the Palestinian government had contacted international sides to intervene and force Israel to stop its "escalation" of violence in Gaza, the West Bank, and East Jerusalem.

Earlier, a Palestinian sniper shot and killed an Israeli Defense Ministry employee working on the border fence in northern Gaza Strip a few hours earlier.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said the man was killed while doing "maintenance" work on the border fence.

The Palestinian militant group Popular Resistance Committees claimed responsibility for the shooting, Israeli media reported.

The man was identified as 22-year-old Salah Abu Latif, according to the Haaretz newspaper.

So a mortar is fired into Israel 2 days ago, a bomb almost blows up a bus yesterday, another rocket is fired today plus a sniper kills a civilian, Israel responds, and Israel is escalating the violence.???

Does the spokesman for Hamas and the Palestinian Authority governments, condemn the shooting and killing from Palestinian sniper fire. While the murdered Bedouin, on the Israeli side of the fence, worked fixing storm damage caused to the Israeli-Gaza border fence caused by the recent winter storm. Salah Shukri Abu Latyef, 22, from Rahat, RIP

Let the spokesmen for the Gaza ministry of health, and Hamas and the Palestinian Authority governments, that when they shoot and kill Israeli Arab Bedouin there are severe penalties to be paid.Do they really need another eight days of severe penalties? Do they just enjoy digging people out of rubble? Maybe they enjoy letting their people live in bomb-sites.The UN requires seven million blankets for the Arab refugees displaced due to the civil war in Syria. Please send as many as you can spare.

Amazing that Hamas - the real cowards in this scenario - tempts fate by shooting missiles and mortars at Israel, and then has the gall to complain when Israel responds in kind.

What a shame!! Poor darlings!! You go around killing people that's what you get in return. You killed 4 people this week for no reason. Sent rockets for no reason. No other country in the world would put up with what Israel puts up with. Any other other country would have demolished Gaza by now.

Local,indigenous,civilian resistance(any form)versus foreign brutal,militarist invasion,occupation,terror,,persecution,displacement,enclavement,attrition is an inalienable UNIVERSAL,LEGAL,HUMAN RIGHT,which will NEVER be taken away by Israel's DISPROPORTIONATE CRUELTY toward resistance which is Palestine's right.Just as it was the Jews right,in WW2 & any other people/time in history! Israel's 67yrs collective punishment of non-Jews,is an umbrella WAR CRIME,held in situ by USG. NOW UNSUSTAINABLE!
