A 22-year-old civilian has been killed and 10 others wounded; tow of them suffered serious injuries, by two separate Israeli air-strikes in the Gaza Strip on Tuesday evening, medical resources said.

The civilian killed in the strike known as Abdullah al Telbani. He was attacked while driving a motor tricycle towards the north of the Strip.

The two seriously wounded were seating with him. All of them were taken to hospital by paramedics.

Witnesses said that an unmanned Israeli plane attacked the motor tricycle and that was confirmed by a statement of  the spokesman of the Israeli occupation forces.

The indicated that the strike was carried out jointly by two Israeli security apparatuses and that the target had been a squad involved in recent terror activity.

Palestinian officials and activists confirmed that the Strip lives a state of quietness for months and there were no Gaza home-made rocket launches.

The other 7 civilians were wounded by an earlier Israeli F 16 strike which the Israelis said that militants were their target.

Meanwhile, paramedics and other witnesses said that the target apparently was a civilian car and all the wounded were civilians. “That refutes comletely the Israeli claims of targeting militants,” a paramedic said.
