GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A 24-year-old Palestinian died Thursday from injuries sustained in an Israeli air strike a day earlier, Gaza's health ministry said.

Mohammad Hirzallah had been injured when Israeli warplanes bombed Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip early Wednesday morning. He died in hospital Thursday, the ministry said in a statement.

Muhammad al-Sheikh, 32, a member of the Popular Resistance Committee's military wing the Nasser Saladin Brigades, was killed immediately in the same strike.

Israel's army said it was targeting a launching squad which moments earlier had fired a rocket at southern Israel.

At least seven Palestinians have been killed in Israeli airstrikes on Gaza since Monday and militants groups have fired a barrage of rockets at Israeli military sites and across the border.
