Gaza - Ma'an - Israeli troops killed a young Palestinian man, 22-year-old Mu'adh Al-Akhras, in the An-Nada neighborhood in the northern Gaza Strip on Monday evening, witnesses and medical sources.

Muawiya Hassanain, the director of ambulance and emergency services in the Palestinian Health Ministry, said the victim was taken to Kamal Udwan Hospital in the town of Beit Hanoun.

Eyewitnesses said the Israeli troops continued to fire at residential houses in the area. Israeli tanks and aircraft invaded Beit Hanoun early on Monday and bombarded the town until evening. Eight Palestinians were killed in the incursion, including a mother and her four young children, a teenager on his way to school, and one armed fighter.

Palestinian leaders condemned the killings, terming Monday's events a "massacre."

On Saturday Israeli forces killed a 14-year-old girl in neighboring Beit Lahiya.
