Mourners gather around the bodies of seven members of the Kelani family, killed overnight by an Israeli strike in Gaza City, during their funeral in Beit Lahiya, northern Gaza Strip, on Tuesday, July 22, 2014. Ibrahim Kelani, 53, his wife Taghreed and their five children, were killed in the strike on a Gaza City highrise. Ibrahim's brother Saleh Kelani said Tuesday that his brother and his brother’s children, ranging in age from four to 12, had German citizenship, while his wife had not. The family had rented the apartment in the high-rise after fleeing their home in the northern Gaza town of Beit Lahiya which came under heavy shelling by the Israeli army. (AP Photo/Lefteris Pitarakis)JERUSALEM (AP) — A rocket fired from the Gaza Strip landed near Israel's main airport Tuesday, wounding one Israeli and prompting at least two American airlines to cancel flights to Israel in a reflection of high anxiety over air travel after last week's attack on a Malaysian jet over Ukraine.
