Gaza - Ma'an - One Hamas fighter was killed and another injured on Wednesday morning during fierce fighting with undercover Israeli forces who raided Khan Younis, in the southern Gaza Strip, witnesses said.

One Israeli soldier was killed and two others injured in the clashes, the Israeli army said. The wounded soldiers were treated at Soroka hospital in Be'er Sheva.

Palestinian medical sources identified the dead Palestinian fighter as 23-year-old Muhammad Shamiyya, an activist with the armed wing of Hamas, the Al-Qassam Brigades.

The Israeli forces withdrew at 6:30am, ending the fighting.
