An Israeli drone strike has killed a Palestinian man and wounded two others. Medical sources and witnesses said the strike was carried out Sunday in the southern city of Rafah.
Security source said that the PRC 's member Eid Hijazi, 22, was killed in an Israeli bomb exploded during an air strike that targeted his motorcycle in the city of Rafah.
According to another Security officials, Hijazi is a member of the Popular Resistance Committees militant group and recently he had shifted allegiance to "Magles Shoura al-Mujahddin," among Salafi factions that are a fringe presence in Hamas-ruled Gaza.
A group, by the same name, took responsibility for a guerrilla raid from the Egyptian Sinai into Israel in June which killed an Israeli who was helping erect a border fence.
Israel's army said in a statement that one of the men targeted "was among those responsible for the execution of the terror attack adjacent to the Israel-Egypt border, in which an Israeli security man was killed."
According to the Israeli security agency, an Israeli army spokesman said Hijazi was planning another terror attack against Israeli targets at the Egypt border and Sinai Peninsula along with other global jihadist movement members.
For his part, a leader of the central leadership of resistance committees in Gaza, Ayman al-Shahniya said after the attack that such killings increased the strength and determination of fighters to continue resisting Israel's occupation.
"Our only strategic choice to communicate with the Israeli occupation will be through the barrel of a gun because what was taken by force can only be retaken by force and that's the path our martyrs have chosen," al-Shahniya added.
He urged all Palestinians to support national unity and resistance.
Earlier, Palestinian resistance fired rockets towards Israeli forces operating near the border of the central Gaza Strip, the Israeli army said.
An Israeli military spokeswoman said rockets landed near troops conducting "routine activity" near the fence. Forces returned fire, she added.
