Israeli Drone Kills Palestinian in Gaza

A Palestinian man was killed and another wounded in an Israeli drone strike on Rafah in the Gaza Strip on Sunday, medics and witnesses said.
The men were riding a motorcycle at the time.
Palestinian sources named the victim as Eid Hijazi, a member of the radical Popular Resistance Committees.
An Israeli army spokesman confirmed an attack had taken place but could not give immediate details.
The border between Gaza and Israel remains tense, with occasional flare-ups since June when Palestinians fired dozens of rockets into the Jewish state which responded with multiple air raids that killed 15 Palestinians.
