A Palestinian activist in the Islamic Jihad terror group was killed Monday, and two others were injured, when a bomb exploded east of the Jabaliya refugee camp in the northern Gaza Strip.
The Palestinian Health Ministry named the man as 30-year-old Mazen Muhammed Lulu, from the Shejaiya district in the eastern Strip.
The circumstances surrounding the blast were not immediately clear.
According to Palestinian reports, Lulu was a fighter in the al-Quds Brigades, the armed wing of Islamic Jihad.
A statement released by the group mourned the death of Lulu, saying he was killed “as he carried out his duty of jihad.”
The Iran-backed Islamic Jihad is the second-strongest armed movement in the Gaza Strip, after Hamas.
