Palestinian medical sources reported Friday that five Palestinians were wounded when the Israeli air force missiles targeting Abasan Al-Kabeera town, east of Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip. Adham Abu Salmiyya, spokesperson of the Higher Committee of Medical and Emergency Services, stated that three Palestinians were moved to Nasser Hospital and the European Hospital in Khan Younis, and that two of them are in a very serious condition.

At least two more Palestinians were wounded when the Israeli Air Force fired a missile near a Khalil Ar-Rahman mosque also in Abasan Al-Kabeera.

The latest attacks come after a Palestinian fighter and an Israeli soldier were killed during armed clashes that took place when fighters infiltrated into an Israeli military base east of Khan Younis.

Abu Ahmad, media spokesperson of the Al-Quds Brigades, the armed wing of the Islamic Jihad, denied responsibility for the attack against the military base. His statements came after some media agencies reported that the Al-Quds Brigades was behind the attack.

Furthermore, Israeli sources reported that two mortars were fired into open areas, near the Asqalan Coast; no injuries were reported.
