At least one Palestinian has been killed and another injured in the latest Israeli airstrike against the besieged Gaza Strip, medics report.

The 22-year-old Mohammed Enaya was killed after Israeli air force targeted an area in the Zeitun neighborhood, east of Gaza City, on Friday.

His death brought to at least 12 the number of Gazans killed in the past 24 hours since Israel launched a series of air strikes against Gaza.

The strikes began after eight Israelis were killed in shooting attacks in the Negev Desert on Thursday.

Two children are reported to be among the dead. Dozens of Palestinians have also been injured in Israel's attacks.

Tel Aviv has accused resistance groups affiliated with Hamas of organizing the attacks and has vowed a “full force” response against the Palestinians in Gaza.

Hamas, however, has strongly dismissed the allegations, saying the group's fighters had nothing to do with the assault and has warned against any act of aggression against the enclave.
