Israeli Gunships Fire At Vehicle In Gaza

Israeli helicopter gunships launched missiles Tuesday at a vehicle in Gaza City, apparently targeting a Hamas official who this past weekend had declared that the militant group would continue attacks against Israel. Abdel Aziz al-Rantissi was injured in the strike, Palestinian sources said. Two people were reported killed when the missiles blasted at least one vehicle, leaving it a mangled, blazing hulk. More than 20 people were injured. Al-Rantissi had said Sunday that Hamas and other Palestinian militant groups would continue to strike Israelis, despite last week’s summit in Aqaba, Jordan, at which Israeli and Palestinian officials had pledged to follow the so-called “road map” to Middle East peace. The Hamas spokesman’s declaration had come hours after four Israeli soldiers were killed by Palestinian militants in an unusual joint operation involving members of Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades. “We are all against surrender in front of the aggression of Israelis,” al-Rantissi had said Sunday. “We are all saying that resistance will continue, despite the summit of Al-Aqaba, Sharm el-Sheikh, saying that we are all against what the summit said to Palestinians — so it means that resistance will continue.” Full Story
