One person was wounded on Monday when an IAF fighter jet fired a missile at a car in the northern Gaza Strip. The IDF said the vehicle was filled with Kassams and was carrying terrorists preparing to fire the rockets at Israel. The army said there were several secondary explosions after the missile hit the car. The airstrike occurred shortly after Prime Minister Ehud Olmert warned of severe consequences if recent rocket fire out of Gaza continued. The blast occurred near Beit Hanun, a frequent launching ground for Palestinian rocket attacks on Israel. Islamic Jihad said its members were in the car on a "holy mission." It said two of the group's operatives escaped the vehicle seconds before the attack, and one passerby was wounded in the blast. Medical officials said the man, whose identity could not immediately be confirmed, was in moderate condition. Defense officials said that the IDF would continue to target Palestinians involved in Kassam rocket attacks.
