JERUSALEM – Israeli warplanes pounded smuggling tunnels under the Gaza-Egypt border early Wednesday, a day after a Palestinian bomb killed an Israeli soldier and the Israeli military vowed to respond harshly to any further attacks.

The border flare-up — 10 days into an informal cease-fire — came just hours before President Barack Obama's new Mideast envoy was due to meet Israeli leaders. The soldier was killed on Israel's frontier with the Gaza Strip by a roadside bomb planted on the Gaza side and set off by remote control, the military said. Three other members of the Israeli squad patrolling the border were injured.

Hamas said the Israeli strike injured one of its men as he rode a motorcycle in the southern Gaza town of Khan Younis.
