AFP doesn't seem interested in who Mohammed Yassin is

However, the lead sentence mantions that the attack occurred on Eid al-Adha:
One person was killed and another seriously wounded in an Israeli air strike on a car in Gaza City during the Muslim Eid al-Adha holiday on Wednesday, medical sources and an AFP photographer said.

"Mohammed Yassin was killed and his brother Islam was seriously wounded in an Israeli strike on a car in the Samer area of Gaza City," emergency services spokesman Adham Abu Selmiya told AFP.

The body was seen by an AFP photographer at Gaza City's Shifa hospital.

A witness told AFP he saw an Israeli warplane fire towards a white car in the city centre.

The Israeli army had no immediate comment on the raid, which was the fourth air strike on Gaza within two weeks. [...]
The AFP goes on to mention the recent killing of "Mohammed al-Nemnem, a senior militant with the Army of Islam." Maan News has some idea bout Yassin's identity:
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 Jaysh Al-Islam.
Jaysh Al-Islam is the Army of Islam.
