An Israeli unmanned drone has launched missiles east of Gaza City, injuring three Palestinians, including a Hamas leader, witnesses say.

    Dozens of Palestinians have died in Israel's continuing raid

    The missiles targeted a Hamas leader in the Shijaiya district late on Sunday as he stood with a friend near a local mosque, witnesses told Aljazeera.

    Medics at Shifa Hospital said the two men were in serious condition undergoing surgery.

    The third person injured was a woman with no connection to the resistance movement. 

    The Israeli army has declined to comment.

    The raid came as occupation forces pursued a separate offensive in northern Gaza to stop homemade rocket attacks on Israeli towns and illegal settlements.

    Sixty-six Palestinians and three Israelis have died in the five-day raid.
