GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A young Palestinian man was killed and three others were injured Monday in an Israeli airstrike on al-Sikka street in Beit Hanoun in the northern Gaza Strip, medics said.

They told Ma’an that Musab Moussa al-Zaaneen, 21, was pronounced dead on arrival at Kamal Adwan hospital. The others were moderately and seriously injured.

The Israeli air force fired at least two missiles at a group of Palestinians, hitting them directly.

The Israeli military said the attack targeted a group preparing to launch rockets.

"The mission was carried out in order to eliminate an imminent attack targeting civilian communities of southern Israel," the emailed statement said.

Army spokesman Peter Lerner added in the same statement that "IDF intelligence, operational capability and determination to eliminate a real time threat keeps Israelis safe in their homes. This is our obligation and commitment to the civilians in the south of Israel."
