GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- One man was killed and another injured in an Israeli airstrike on the Gaza Strip on Tuesday, locals said.

Eyewitnesses told Ma'an that Israeli warplanes fired at a motorcycle west of Gaza City. Haitham al-Mishal, 25, was killed in the attack, and another unidentified man was injured, medical official Ashraf al-Qidra told Ma'an.

Both men were evacuated to al-Shifa hospital.

Al-Mishal was from the ash-Shati refugee camp in northern Gaza and was a security guard at al-Shifa hospital, al-Qidra said.

He suffered severe shrapnel wounds to his body in the attack, the Gaza health official added.

Witnesses told Ma'an that Israeli military vehicles briefly entered the ash-Shujaiyeh area east of Gaza City following the airstrike, with reports of gunfire.

Israel's army said in a statement that "a global Jihad-affiliated terrorist has been targeted by an IAF aircraft in the northern Gaza Strip in response to rocket fire towards Israel."

According to Israel, Mishal was involved in a rocket attack on the Israeli city of Eilat on April 17.
