Two Palestinians were assassinated, on Wednesday at night, when an Israeli drone fired a missile at a Palestinian car driving near Abu Taha Fuel Station, in the center of Rafah city, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip. At least two residents were injured, one seriously. Medical sources reported that the two slain residents were identified as Ashfar Saleh and Anus Abu Al-Einein.

One of the wounded residents is currently in a serious condition at the Gaza European Hospital, the sources added.
The Israeli missiles also led to extensive damages to nearby buildings.

Local sources reported that Israeli drones and war jets were heard and seen flying over the coastal region, an issue that raised concerns among the civilians of further attacks.

Several resistance groups in the coastal regions vowed retaliation for the assassination.
