GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli warplanes killed an elderly man in the central Gaza Strip overnight Saturday, in a series of airstrikes across Gaza that injured three others.
Palestinian medics said 69-year-old Abdul-Karim Az-Zaytouna was killed and two others were injured when warplanes bombed steel sheds near the Zaytoun neighborhood of Gaza City.
Israeli forces also targeted sites in the southern Gaza Strip, injuring one near Khan Younis when a missile landed in an open area. A house belonging to the Imteir family was shelled east of Rafah, causing severe damage, but no reported injuries.
An Israeli military statement said the strikes targeted a "terror tunnel and a weapon manufacturing facility in the northern Gaza Strip, a terror tunnel in the central Gaza Strip and an additional terror tunnel in the southern Gaza Strip."
Palestinians carry the body of Abdel Karim Zatuniya during his funeral in Gaza City on February 12, 2012. Zatuniya, an elderly man serving as a guard at the barracks in the Zeitun area, southeast of Gaza city, died after being wounded following a series of Israeli airstrikes late last night that left four others wounded, Gaza medical sources said.
