Israeli missile hits Gaza car, militants escape
font size    

Militants from the Islamic Jihad (Holy War) movement escaped an assassination attempt on Sunday when an Israeli aircraft fired one missile on their car in northeastern Gaza Strip.

Witnesses said the Israeli air strike has caused injuries among the passengers and ambulance workers said they were unable to reach the area of Beit Hanoun town which is near the border with Israel.

However, al-Quds Brigades, the armed wing of the Islamic Jihad, in a statement faxed to reporters, denied any casualties among its members and clarified the missile targeted the militants after they launched a home-made rocket into southern Israel.

The statement revealed that the car was hit with the rocket while the militants managed to escape unharmed. Militants often fire rockets on Israel from Beit Hanoun town.

The incident came hours ahead of a meeting for the Israeli security cabinet to discuss ongoing rocket attacks from Gaza.
