A 17-year-old boy was killed and about 25 people were wounded in a strike on a Gaza City mosque late Monday, UN and medical officials said. Gaza militants meanwhile bombarded Israel with more than 100 rockets on Monday, according to the Israeli army, with troops shooting 14 down including one in the greater Tel Aviv area. More than 2,100 Palestinians have been killed in Gaza since Israel began its offensive on July 8, aiming to stamp out rocket fire from Palestinian militants.
