GAZA, PALESTINOW.COM — One Palestinian was killed and another was wounded during an Israeli air raid at dawn Thursday on a resistance post east of the Gaza Strip.
According to the Palestinian Information Center (PIC), an Israeli drone fired two missiles at a resistance post to the east of al-Shuja’iyya neighborhood, leading to the killing of 31-year-old Mohamed Hajila and the injury of another citizen. The casualties were transferred to al-Shifa Hospital
This airstrike was preceded by similar aerial attacks on Abu Jarad military site, which belongs to al-Qassam Brigades of Hamas, in Gaza City.
Spokesman for the Israeli occupation army Avichay Adraee claimed the airstrikes were in response to the detonation of an explosive device near a military vehicle during an incursion into eastern Gaza on Wednesday morning.
The Israeli army already bombed a resistance observation post and agricultural plots of land east of Gaza City with about 20 artillery projectiles in response to the same alleged explosion of an explosive device. (PIC)
