Celebratory Gaza Shooting Kills One, Wounds Three

A Gaza man was killed and three were wounded by stray bullets fired in the Hamas-controlled area to follow the cease-fire announced Wednesday evening to stop hostilities between terrorists and Israel.

In confirming the story, a Gaza health-department spokesman appealed to others, through the Palestinian Authority's Ma'an news agency, not to shoot in the air during the celebrations.
