Israeli fire injures Palestinian in northern Gaza

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces shot and injured a Palestinian man in the northern Gaza Strip on Thursday, officials said.

Medical services spokesman Adham Abu Salmiyya said a man identified only by the initials "AH," 24" was shot in the leg near the town of Beit Lahiya. He described the injuries as moderate.

The National Resistance Brigades, the military wing of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine, said one of its fighters was injured in the area while firing a rocket-propelled grenade at an Israeli army vehicle along the border.

Earlier, two mortar shells fired from Gaza landed in Israeli territory, causing no injuries, the country's army said, a day after an Israeli airstrike killed two brothers in the Palestinian enclave.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said the shells landed in the Eshkol Regional Council, adjacent to Gaza.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility from Palestinian armed groups in Gaza.

At sundown on Wednesday an Israeli drone fired a missile at a car in Gaza City's bustling downtown, killing Muhammad and Islam Yassin, the latter believed to be a member of the salafist Army of Islam.

The Israeli military claimed the two were was plotting to attack Israeli citizens in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula.

The strike came just two weeks after another Israeli assassination killed Muhammad Nimnim, who was also said to be a senior member in the Army of Islam.

Since the end of Israel's winter war on Gaza, the territory's Hamas government has restrained armed groups from breaking a ceasefire with Israel.
