One dead, several injured by Israeli shells east of Khan Younis; seven projectiles launched by brigades in response

Nov. 28, 2008 2:08 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 28, 2008 2:08 P.M.)
Gaza - Ma'an - The Al-Qassam Brigades launched five homemade projectiles at Israeli targets, and the Al-Mujahidin Brigades another two following the death of one activist by Israeli shells north east of Khan Younis Friday afternoon.

One man was reported dead and several others injured after Israeli warplanes launched three rounds of shells at An-Nasser Brigades activists, from the military wing of the Popular Resistance Committees (PRC), in the town of Al-Qarara.

Director of Ambulances and Emergency at the Ministry of Health Dr Mu'awiya Hassanein said three men were transported to the Nasser Hospital in Khan Younis. He also confirmed three loud explosions were heard in the region, and said ambulances were unable to reach the remote area where the shells hit immediately.

Hassanein indicated medical staff had heard reports of one man killed and several others injured.

The Al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas, announced that the projectiles were in response to the Israeli shelling of Al-Qarara.

The Al-Mujahidin Brigades, affiliated with Fatah, sent a statement on Friday evening claiming they sent two homemade projectiles at an unspecified Israeli military target in the Al-Farahin neighborhood east of Khan Younis.

Israeli sources have not reported any injuries.
