VIDEO - Palestinian sources in Gaza report that three Hamas terrorists were killed in an IAF air strike on a vehicle in the town of Beit Lahiya in northern Gaza.

 

The army said the three belonged to a cell responsible for firing Qassam rockets at Sderot on Thursday and Friday's strike prevented them from launching more rockets.

An unmanned aerial vehicle fired missiles at a car carrying the three men, the army said. A number of small blasts that occured following the strike point to the fact that the terrorists carried missiles and explosives in the car.

Earlier Friday, Palestinian sources told Reuters that Israel Defense Forces troops shot dead a Palestinian woman in a Gaza Strip village where soldiers and gunmen clashed.

 

Palestinian doctors said the woman was shot by an Israeli sniper while she was standing outside her home in southern Gaza.

 

An Israeli army spokesman said Israeli forces opened fire at armed Palestinians in the area and hit one of them.

 

Ten Palestinians, at least four of them gunmen, have been killed in Gaza since Thursday.

 

An 8-year-old girl and an activist were killed and 13 people were injured, two of them sustaining critical wounds, after being hit by a missile launched on Thursday by the Israel Air Force at the home of a Hamas activist in the Gaza City neighborhood of Sajaiya.

Palestinian sources reported that the man killed, Ashraf Krauneh, a senior member of Hamas' military wing in the area, was apparently the target of the attack. 

 

Earlier Thursday, four gunmen were killed in exchanges of fire, which included missiles fired by the IDF and mortar shells fired by the Palestinians. The four gunmen and another 13-year-old boy were all members of one family. Another Palestinian died of his wounds at the hospital.

 

Hamas' military wing, the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, warned that they would take revenge against Israel, pursuant to the deaths.

 

The movement's spokesperson Abu Ubeida said, in an interview with Palestinian Maan news agency: "We promise the Israeli enemy many surprises and promise to show previously unrevealed military capabilities. All operations of the Israeli military in Gaza are meant to cover up their failure to release Gilad Shalit."



 

There was also sporadic fighting overnight between rival gunmen loyal to Hamas and Fatah in northern Gaza after a local Hamas leader and a member of a Fatah-dominated intelligence service were killed in separate incidents on Thursday.

 

The worst internal fighting in a decade has stoked fears of civil war after talks between President Mahmoud Abbas of Fatah and Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh of Hamas over a unity government broke down.
