An Israeli airstrike in Gaza killed a Palestinian and wounded another on Sunday, hospital officials said, hours after Israel killed the leader of a Salafi group.
Medics said Yasser al-Atakal, 24, was killed in the strike on his motorbike east of Khan Younis, and another person was seriously wounded.
The air strike came hours after Israel killed two other men in a similar attack in the northern town of Jabalia late on Saturday.
Both Hamas and Israel identified one of the men killed in the earlier attack as Salafi leader Hisham Al-Saedni, 52, also known as Abu Al-Walid Al-Maqdisi.
Medics said the other man killed in the strike was Al-Saedni's bodyguard Fayiq Abu-Jather. A 10-year-old boy who was passing by the area was also wounded.
Hamas said Saedni had headed Tawhid and Jihad while the Israeli military said he had helped found a Salafi movement, the Hashura Council of the Mujahideen.
The Salafi leader was released from Gaza jail in September 2011 and has since kept a low profile.
