Rafah - One Palestinian was killed and five others wounded on Sunday in an Israeli air strike that targeted a motorbike in the southern Gaza Strip, Palestinian medical sources told AFP. "One citizen was killed and five others, including two children, were wounded by an Israeli aircraft that fired on a motorbike in the Brazil neighbourhood in Rafah," a medical source at Rafah hospital told AFP. Eyewitnesses said the man killed was a member of the Popular Resistance Committees militant group, but there was no immediate confirmation from the organisation. The Israeli military said it was checking on the reported air strike and had no immediate comment. One of the wounded, a man, was in serious condition, the medical source said.
