GAZA CITY (Ma'an) --

 Israeli occupation forces aircraft targeted Gaza's most populous city Wednesday, killing two Palestinian men.

Witnesses said a drone strike targeted a white Subaru just off central Gaza City's Al-Wehda street, leaving a hole in the ground.

The car was ripped in half, the back blown 10 meters from the front with other pieces littering the street. Power lines were damaged in the blast. Black stains from smoke and fire could be seen on an adjacent building.

The strike came at sundown on the second night of the Eid Al Adha holiday, in a busy section of the city.

Medical officials at Al-Shifa Hospital identified the deceased as Muhammad Yassin and his brother, Islam Yassin. Muhammad Yassin was dead when he arrived at the hospital, his upper body covered in burns, while Islam underwent surgery, including the amputation of his left arm, before dying.

An Israeli military spokeswoman confirmed the assassination, which was the second in two weeks.

She said "a senior operative belonging to the terrorist group Army of Islam was targeted" because the group, a radical Islamist organization, was plotting to attack Israeli citizens in the Sinai.

Medics also said the two casualties were likely members of the Army of Islam.

The attack came two weeks to the day after Israel assassinated another member of the Army of Islam, a small Gaza-based armed group lead by Mumtaz Doghmush.
