GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian child on Saturday succumbed to wounds received during an Israeli bombing three days before.

Spokesman for the Gaza Ministry of Health Ashraf al-Qidra said that seven-year-old Ali Abd al-Latif al-Awour was injured during an Israeli strike of the al-Sudaniya region in the northern Gaza Strip on Wednesday.

The strike targeted a Palestinian affiliated with a militant group who was passing through the area on a motorcycle.

The victim was Muhammad Ahmad al-Awour, 30, who was affiliated with the An-Nasser Salah al-Din Brigades, the military wing of the Popular Resistance Committees.

Israel said the strike came in response to rocket fire from the Strip and that the victim was affiliated with "international jihad," but al-Awour's family said he had gone out to get food for dinner when he was killed.

Seven-year-old Ali was walking by when the strike hit.

Israel has killed over 60 Palestinians since last July and injured more than a thousand in the occupied West Bank, East Jerusalem, and Gaza Strip.

Early this evening Gazans rocketed Israel with another missile. Israel will respond. Three days ago Israel targeted a Salafist who worked for Hamas during the day as a policeman and at night as a terrorist for PRC. He was an active ticking bomb participating in the planning and shooting of rockets at Israeli civilians. It is sad that a child was killed in Gaza but the responsibility remains with Gazans, Hamas and the PA for not stopping rocket attacks against Israel.

Disgusting Israel! Shame on you-for betraying your Jewish ancestors who died under anti-Semitism-by following the anti-Semitic Zionist route. Remember,everyone in Gaza;men,women,children,neo-nates are ALL under occupation & relatively of no harm to rogue-nuclear hi-tech military Israel,except by their very PRESENCE of course! Zionism acts like Nazi's shooting/bombing Jewish civilians in Warsaw ghetto,who couldn't defend themselves too. Cowardly Israel!

"International jihad." ? Israel's attempt to avoid more international condemnation for its murderous occupation activities!

Someone once said they believed it was the Israeli-es, the settlers, who were firing the rockets that never hit anything, and this gives them the excuse they need to continue killing Palestinians. It's make sense in that no one is ever hurt.

Rondo Mondo, are you saying that killing innocent unarmed children in Gaza is Ok? Israel are always making false accusations so have an excuse to kill innocent people.

No, number 7, re-read the post that #3 wrote. ''It is sad that a child was killed in Gaza but the responsibility remains with Gazans, Hamas and the PA for not stopping rocket attacks against Israel''

Remember who started this "tit for tat" cross-border action - Hamas or its proxies.
