This is the deadliest Gaza violence in more than a year.

The latest spate of violence got under way Friday afternoon, when an Israeli airstrike on a car in Gaza City killed top militant commander Zuhair al-Qaissi and two of his underlings.

Almost immediately, Gaza militants unleashed a barrage of rockets toward southern Israeli border communities.
