Hamas Blames Israel for Six Dead in Gaza Blast

At least six Palestinian members of Hamas were killed Sunday in a blast near Gaza City which the militant Islamic group blamed on Israel and vowed to avenge. Two other Palestinians were killed in the West Bank city of Nablus during clashes which erupted during an Israeli army raid to arrest a high-ranking official in the Palestine Liberation Organization, witnesses said. Witnesses in Gaza said a car laden with explosives blew up inside a farm in the al-Zeitun neighborhood, known as a Hamas stronghold, just one day after a Hamas land mine gutted an Israeli tank and killed its four crewmen in north Gaza. Hamas officials blamed the car explosion on Israel, saying they believed its members had received a package which was detonated by remote control from a pilotless drone flying in the area. The army had no immediate comment. The boot of the vehicle had been ripped apart and blood covered the ground near a group of farm sheds surrounded by cinder block walls. Two other people were wounded in the blast. Full Story
