GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- One Palestinian was killed and another was injured after Israeli tanks shelled several alleged Hamas military sites in the northern Gaza Strip on Monday night.

Spokesperson of the Gaza Ministry of Health, Ashraf al-Qidra, confirmed that Muhammad Masoud al-Radie, 25, was killed in the Israeli shelling targeting the Beit Lahiya town.

Al-Radie was confirmed to be a fighter in the Izz al-Din al-Qassam fighter, the military wing of the Hamas movement.

Sources told Ma’an that Israeli mortar shells hit three Hamas sites in northwestern Beit Lahiya.

On Sunday, three Palestinians were killed in Israeli shelling targeting military sites in eastern Rafah City in the southern Gaza Strip.

Two of the dead were al-Quds Brigades fighters, the military wing of the Islamic Jihad movement. They were identified by the brigades as Hussein Samir al-Umour, 25, and Abd al-Halim Abd al-Karim al-Naqa, 28.

The third Palestinian succumbed to his wounds later Sunday and was identified as Nassim Marwan al-Umour, 25.

Meanwhile, Israeli news website Ynet reported that 28 mortar shells were fired from Gaza into Israeli territory. No injuries were reported.

According to Ynet, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called for a security consultation at the Prime Minister's Office, with intelligence officials set to attend.
