GAZA, (PIC)– A Palestinian citizen was killed and two others wounded in artillery shelling by the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) at northern Gaza Strip on Tuesday afternoon, medical sources reported.

Adham Abu Salmiya, the spokesman for medical services, told the PIC that the shelling targeting Abu Safiya hilltop killed Amjad Al-Za’anin, 20, and wounded two other teens with shrapnel.

IOF troops had raided northern and southern Gaza Strip areas earlier on Tuesday only to be met with resistance gunfire, PIC reporter said.

He added that resistance elements blasted an explosive device near IOF armored vehicles, which was followed by intensive IOF firing at Palestinian homes and farms to the east of Beit Hnaun in northern Gaza.

Quds Press reported that an IOF army chopper fired a missile at northern Gaza, east of Beit Hanun, during an incursion.

In Rafah, the armed wing of the popular resistance committees fired five mortar rounds at the invading IOF unit east of the city.

In another development, the armed wing of Hamas, the Qassam Brigades, announced that one of its cadres died in Khan Younis while on a “Jihad mission”. It did not elaborate on exact cause of the death but only mentioned that he was 23-year-old Zaher Jarghun.
