GAZA, (PIC)– A Palestinian youth was killed in an Israeli aerial raid on Sunday night east of Gaza city in the latest of a series of military escalation against the besieged Strip that killed one and injured 15 over the past few days.

Local sources said that an Israeli reconnaissance plane fired a missile at a group of Palestinians in Zaitun suburb east of Gaza city killing one of them instantly.

Israeli warplanes and artillery had shelled east of Gaza city and Maghazi refugee camp in central Gaza earlier on Sunday with no casualties reported.

The Quds Brigades, the armed wing of Islamic Jihad, said that the raid killed one of its cadres and wounded two others.

It said that the martyr Abdulmajid Shahin was from Deir Al-Balah in central Gaza, describing the injuries of the two others as moderate.

For its part, the interior ministry in Gaza said that Israel was publishing lies about firing projectiles from Gaza in the past few days to justify the escalation against Gaza.

It said in a press release on Sunday that Israel’s lies also aimed at covering its Judaization practices in occupied Jerusalem and building settlements in the West Bank.

The ministry asked the world community to curb Israel’s crimes and warned against believing its rumors or publishing them, adding that it was following up the issue with the Palestinian resistance factions to deny Israel any pretext.
