The jeep, which had caught fire, had been moving along the border fence between Israel and the Gaza Strip when it was hit by an anti-tank missile.
The video clearly shows the missile hitting the jeep. An IDF inquiry indicated that during a routine Givati force patrol along the border fence, an anti-tank missile was fired from the Sajaiya neighborhood.
The missile penetrated the jeep and exited from the other side. The IDF responded by with tank fire killing four Palestinians and wounding 20.
The event set in motion a round of violence that saw more than 110 rockets being fired at Israel. One of the soldiers wounded in the attack was discharged from the Barzilai Medical Center in Ashkelon on Monday.
A statement issued by the PRC's military wing said that the missile that hit the jeep was a guided missile.
"The rules of the game have changed, the Palestinian resistance has increased its capabilities vis-à-vis the enemy," the statement said.
The group stressed it will remain "on the front to protect the Palestinian people" and called on the other factions to respond to "Israel's crimes."
The group further called for the establishment of a joint war room for all the Palestinian factions in the campaign against Israel.
