Palestinian medical sources in the Gaza Strip reported, Sunday, that one resident was killed and several others were wounded, when an Israeli drone fired one missile targeting a motorcycle rider in Rafah, in the southern part of the coastal region. The slain resident was identified as Eid Hijazi Oakal, 22. Another resident, a passenger on the motorcycle, was seriously injured.
An Israeli military spokesperson stated that the strike targeted a senior resistance fighter who allegedly participated in an attack carried out last month on the border with Egypt, in Sinai, leading to the death of a construction worker participating in the construction of the border wall with Egypt.
The spokesperson added that the slain fighter and his companion were planning an attack against an Israeli military target along the border with Egypt.
In related news, Israeli soldiers, based along the border with Gaza, fired on Sunday evening several shells targeting an area east of Rafah; no damages or injuries were reported.
