Report: Palestinian killed in IAF air strike

An IAF air strike hit a makeshift prayer room on the outskirts of the Gaza town of Beit Hanoun on Friday, killing at least one person, Palestinians reported. The small building, known as the Abdullah Azzem Mosque, was used for Muslim prayers, but did not have the outward signs or markings of a mosque. The IDF said it targeted a group of terror operatives who were planting a bomb near a road junction. The operatives were out in the open, and army officials said no building was targeted in the strike.
