Gaza: An Israeli air strike on the central Gaza Strip killed a Palestinian man on Tuesday, an emergency services spokesman said.
"A man named Ashraf Yassin was killed in an Israeli air strike west of Nusseirat refugee camp in central Gaza," spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra told AFP.
Witnesses said the man was a militant of the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of the Islamist Hamas movement.
Early on Monday, three Palestinian militants were killed in a series of raids across Gaza. Two of them belonged to the Popular Resistance Committes and one was a member of Hamas.
At the same time, another five Hamas militants died and a sixth was left in critical condition when a tunnel collapsed on them near the southern city of Rafah.
Hamas blamed Israel, but the military denied conducting a raid in that area and blamed the deaths on the militants mishandling their own explosives.
