The sources stated that eight Palestinians were wounded, two seriously, when the army fired missiles at a Palestinian Jeep driving near a gas station in Al Jala neighborhood in Gaza City.

One Palestinian was killed and three others were wounded in an earlier air strike targeting a Palestinian driving a motorcycle in Jabalia, in the northern part of the Gaza Strip.

The Israeli army claimed that the attack targeted fighters who fired shells at Israeli areas adjacent to the Gaza Strip.

In a separate attack, soldiers fired rounds of live ammunition at homes and property east of Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip; no damages or injuries were reported.
