Local sources reported that the Air Force bombarded the Nasser Camp, leading to excessive damage but no injuries.

Meanwhile, the Ansar Brigades stated that its fighters fired five shells into the Israeli areas of Holit, Nir Yitzhak and Kerem Shalom (Karem Abu Salem).

The Brigades added that the shelling comes in retaliation to the latest Israeli military escalation against the Gaza Strip.

Earlier on Tuesday, that the army fired one missile at a motorcycle driven by Haitham Mas-hal, 29, leading to instant death while two residents were injured, and were moved to the Al-Shifa hospital in Gaza.

Mas-hal is from the Ash-Shaty’ refugee camp; he worked as guard at the Ash-Shifa medical center. Both of his legs were severed due to the blast; he also suffered various injuries that led to his death.

The attack was carried out shortly before a number of armored military vehicles invaded the Ash-Shujaeyya neighborhood, east of Gaza city.

The Shura Al-Mujahedin Salafist group in Gaza, issued a press release stating that the slain man is one of its leaders.
