Palestinian 'killed' in Israeli air strike

Armed group says one member killed in attack near Khan Yunis after fighters battled Israeli troops.

     

    An Israeli air strike on the Gaza Strip has reportedly killed a suspected fighter and wounded two civilians.

    Tuesday's attack close to the city of Khan Yunis killed Popular Resistance Committees member Khaled Sahmud, 24, the group said in a statement.

    The armed group added the air strike came after some of its fighters battled with Israeli troops near Khan Yunis.

    The Israeli army in a statement said it hit a target after its forces attracted mortar fire during "routine operation activity".

    "In response to this mortar fire, IAF [Israeli Air Force] aircraft targeted the terrorist squad who was responsible for the firing, identifying a hit," the statement said.

    A father and son were believed to have been wounded in the Israel attack.
