GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A man was killed on Wednesday in the Gaza Strip after an Israeli strike targeted the al-Shujaiyeh neighborhood in Gaza City, medical sources said.
"A Palestinian militant was killed by an Israeli drone in Shujaiyeh," said Ashraf al-Qidra, spokesman for the Hamas-run health ministry, referring to a district near the Israeli border with Gaza.
He named the dead man as Muhammad Salamah al-Ijlah, 32, and said his body had been torn apart by the blast, the limbs ripped by shrapnel.
Family sources in the neighborhood said Ijlah was a militant from Islamic Jihad's Al-Quds Brigade and was killed by a drone.
The militant group issued a statement confirming Ijlah was one of its members but said he had been killed "in a Zionist shelling" on the area. more
