BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The Israeli military said in a statement that a soldier was killed around noon on Friday after militants fired mortars and anti-tank missiles.
The statement said that the attack was launched from "near" a UNRWA school.
UNRWA is the UN's agency focusing on Palestinian refugees, of which more than half of Gaza's 1.7 million people are considered to be a part.
Palestinian militants have killed 35 soldiers and injured hundreds since the beginning of the ground assault last week.
