GAZA CITY - Israeli artillery fire killed one Palestinian in the north of the Gaza Strip on Monday, medics said.
Khaled al-Kafarneh was killed when an artillery shell hit his house in Beit Lahiya, they said.
The Israeli army said it was checking into the reports.
The violence comes as Egypt continued efforts to broker a lasting truce in the coastal strip to replace shaky mutual ceasefires called by Israel and Hamas on January 18 after Israel's 22-day on Gaza.

Israeli warplanes carried out air strikes Monday on the Gaza Strip that caused damage but no injuries, witnesses and Palestinian security sources said.
An Israeli F-16 fired two missiles against a police post near the southern city of Khan Yunis, sparking a fire.
An Israeli helicopter also carried out a raid in an area of Beit Lahiya in northern Gaza, but caused no casualties.
Israel's war on Gaza killed 1,330 Palestinians, mainly civilians, and wounded 5,450 others.
Among the dead were 437 children, 110 women, 123 elderly men, 14 medics and four journalists.
The wounded include 1,890 children and 200 people in serious condition. The war also left tens of thousands of houses destroyed, while their residents remained homeless in the winter cold.
