Gaza - Ma'an - A 55-year- old Palestinian man was killed when Israeli forces shelled his house in northeast Beit Hanoun during an Israeli incursion on Wednesday night.

A hospital spokesman said Daoud Al-Kafarneh was dead on arrival at Beit Hanoun Hospital.

The same source announced that two wounded were taken to Ash-Shifa Hospital in Gaza. Six Palestinians, including resistance fighters, were injured when Israeli helicopters fired on people who were watching Israeli military vehicles near their homes on Wednesday night in northern Beit Hanoun.

Around twenty Israeli military vehicles stormed Beit Hanoun through the Erez crossing and moved towards a residential area in Al-Sika and Al-Sultan Streets. They waited on the outskirts of the town until they were joined by another thirty military vehicles, along with a number of bulldozers that began razing agricultural lands in the vicinity.

On Thursday morning three Palestinian resistance fighters were targeted by Israeli aircraft in Khaza'a, east of Khan Younis.

Medical sources from Nasser Hospital said one of the resistance fighters lost both his legs in the attack.

The Al-Quds Brigades, the military wing of Islamic Jihad, said that two of their fighters were injured in the Israeli raid.

Meanwhile, Hamas' Al-Qassam Brigades announced they had launched five mortar shells and one rocket propelled grenade at Israeli military vehicles in Khan Younis on Thursday morning.
