An Israeli air strike on Saturday killed four Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, a Palestinian official said.
In a statement, the office of the Palestinian health ministry said the Palestinian aid worker, identified as Mahmoud Abu al-Fakih, was killed by an Israeli airstrike in the city of Khan Younis, in the southern Gaza Strip.
“The air force of the Israeli army targeted Abu al Fakih in Khan Younos village,” the ministry said in a statement.
It added that al-Baraa had been wounded in the attack.
The Israeli military said in January that it was carrying out airstrikes against targets in the territory in response to rocket fire from Gaza into Israel.
It said that Hamas had launched more than 80 rockets from the territory since July 2015, hitting Tel Aviv, the West Bank, Jerusalem and the Israeli coastal city of Ashkelon.
The Gaza Strip is home to some 400,000 people, including many civilians, and Israel has been conducting air strikes and naval patrols there since 2007.
