Israeli forces have killed a Palestinian man in a gunfire attack in east of Khan Yunis in the Gaza Strip, Palestinian medics say.

Hassan Abu Rok, 22, was killed in the Israeli gunfire attack on Tuesday, said Hamas spokesman Adham Abu Selmiya.

The incident comes two days after two Palestinians died in Khan Yunis after Israeli soldiers launched a gun battle in the area.

The Israeli military has repeatedly waged attacks on Gaza since its massive 22-day war on the territory at the turn of 2009.

However, during this month, there has been a surge of violence along the Israeli-Gaza border.
