Days of Palestine -

Israeli occupation war jets struck the eastern area of the Gaza City tonight, killing Palestinian security officer and seriously wounded another.

Massive explosions woke up the people of the Gaza City at midnight. People went up to the rooftops of their homes and turned on their radios to know that there was an Israeli airstrike.

A couple of minutes later, the Director of Al-Shefa Hospital Dr Ayman al-Sahabani announced that a body of a Palestinian youth had arrived in the hospital.

Just five minutes later, he also announced the arrival of a seriously wounded youth, noting both people were struck by an Israeli F16 rocket.

Eyewitness and security sources said that the two people, who are members of the Field Control Apparatus, were attacked by an Israeli war jet while guarding the eastern borders of Gaza.

The dead was later identified as Ayman abu-Hijaila, 31 years old.
