Airstrike Kills PRC Fighter in Gaza

An Israeli airstrike late Tuesday killed a member of the armed wing of the Popular Resistance Committees and injured three others east of Khan Younis in southern Gaza, medics said.

Gaza medical official Adham Abu Salmiya said aircraft fired a missile toward a group of people killing a Palestinian and injuring two children and an elderly man. They were taken to Nasser hospital in Khan Younis.

The An-Nasser Salah Ad-Din Brigades said in a statement that Khaled Samhud, 23, the leader of the artillery unit in the brigades, died during Israeli airstrikes targeting members of the group.

The PRC armed wing added that its forces targeted a group of Israeli soldiers near the Kissufim border area and claimed responsibility for firing a rocket toward Israeli military vehicles.

Witnesses said Israeli forces opened fire as aircraft flew above eastern Khan Younis.

An Israeli military spokeswoman did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
