The slain Palestinian, Osama Abdul-Rahman Hussein as-Souri, 28, was killed in the az-Zanna area, east of Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.
Osama died from serious wounds he suffered earlier Saturday when the soldiers fire missiles into the area, killing Tamim Ghassan Hijazi, 24.

Among the wounded Palestinians are women and children, the Health Ministry in Gaza has confirmed.
In Khan Younis, in the southern Gaza Strip, the soldiers fired missiles into an abandoned home, wounding a child walking nearby.
The army also fired missiles into two buildings run by armed resistance factions, south of Gaza city and in Rafah, in the southern part of the coastal region.
The Israeli offensive on Gaza, dubbed as ‘Breaking Down’, started when the army assassinated Tayseer al-Ja’bari, one of the senior leading to the Islamic Jihad movement, before the Al-Quds Brigades, the armed wing of the movement retaliated by firing shells.
