Israeli Attack on Militants Also Kills Boy

An Israeli helicopter fired a missile on Saturday morning that killed a Palestinian militant traveling in a car and a 12-year-old boy who was walking by on a busy street in Gaza City, Palestinian doctors and the Israeli military said. Nine other Palestinians were injured. In another development, four Palestinian men went on trial in a Palestinian security court on weapons charges linked to a roadside bombing that killed three American security workers on Oct. 15 as they escorted a United States diplomatic convoy into the Gaza Strip. American officials have said the Palestinians have not done enough to solve the case, which has been a source of friction. The opening of the trial was not announced in advance, and after a brief session Saturday in Gaza City, the proceedings were adjourned until Feb. 29. The Israeli missile slammed into the front end of a white sedan carrying two members of the militant group Islamic Jihad. A fire ignited, and several people on the street were struck by shrapnel and debris. Full Story
