Gaza: 2 killed in IDF airstrike

An Israeli airstrike hit a car traveling in Gaza City, killing two and wounding at least five, Palestinian security and medical officials said.

 

The IDF confirmed the attack. Army sources said that the car attacked belonged to a cell which has been involved in Qassam attacks in the past, and was apparently on its way to launch rockets at Israel.

 

The sources added that the vehicle contained explosives that were detonated following the strike. The IDF stressed that it would continue attacking terror operatives linked to the Qassam fire.

 

An earlier airstrike had hit a Hamas training center south of Gaza City, destroying the compound and lightly injuring at least three, witnesses said.

 

The strike in Sajaiya came against the backdrop of intensive negotiations between the factions on a ceasefire with Israel. Ynet has

learned that one of the options discussed was a unilateral declaration by one of the factions on a truce. However, in light of the recent attack, this proposal may not come into effect.

 

The Qassam fire continued Friday, and two rockets were launched at Sderot in the evening. One of the rockets fell near a house, lightly injuring four people. Ten other people suffered from shock.

 

The other Qassam hit a warehouse in the town's industrial zone.
