On Wednesday, an Israeli military drone fired a missile into Palestinian agricultural lands east of Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip, killing a young man and seriously wounding another.
Media sources said the drone fired the missile at lands east of Abasan town, east of Khan Younis, killing Mohammad Yousef Abu T’eima, 25, and seriously wounding another Palestinian.
The Israeli army claimed its drone targeted members of the Al-Quds Brigades, the armed wing of the Islamic Jihad, who reportedly intended to fire homemade shells.
The Palestinian News & Info Agency (WAFA) said the Palestinian was a farmer and was killed while working on his land when the drone fired the missile.
WAFA added that the Israeli army also fired several artillery shells targeting two buildings, believed to be run by armed resistance groups, east of Khan Younis.
Furthermore, a Palestinian child was injured when the Israeli Air Force fired missiles into lands and buildings west of Beit Lahia, in northern Gaza, and into farmland near a local mosque in the Be’er An-Na’ja area.
Also Wednesday, dozens of thousands of Palestinians held the funeral ceremonies and processions of the fifteen Palestinians, including women and children, who were killed a day earlier in the Israeli bombardment of the Gaza Strip.
Thirteen of the slain Palestinians were killed on Tuesday dawn, and two were killed in renewed Israeli strikes in the evening of the same day.
In the occupied West Bank, Israeli soldiers killed two young Palestinian men and injured one in Qabatia town, south of Jenin.
