GAZA CITY, Palestinian Territories (AFP) - A seven-year-old Gaza boy wounded in an Israeli air raid on the northern Gaza Strip died on Saturday, a spokesman for the Palestinian health services said.

Ali al-Awour was wounded in Wednesday's strike targeting his uncle, radical Salafist Mohammed al-Awour, who was killed. Another Palestinian man was wounded.

The Israeli military said on Wednesday it had targeted "terrorists affiliated to the international jihad", its designation for Al-Qaeda inspired groups in Gaza.

Awour, 30, and the wounded man were travelling on a motorbike when they were attacked. The boy had been passing by on foot.
