Gaza - Ma'an - An Al- Qassam Brigades activist was killed and two others were injured at dawn on Friday during clashes with Israeli special forces near the Kissufim military base, east of the town of Al-Qarrara in the southern Gaza Strip.

Dr. Muawya Hassanain, director of ambulance and emergency services in the Palestinian Ministry of Health said that the dead man, 23-year-old Bilal Al-Astal, and the two other injured men were taken to Nasser hospital in Khan Younis.

A resistance group calling itself the Nation's Army said on Friday morning that their fighters had also targeted three Israeli soldiers south of Kissufim.

"The attack came in response to the drawings which insult the Holy Prophet and crimes against Muslims in Jerusalem," the group said in a statement.
