IAF aircraft on Tuesday evening fired two missiles at a Palestinian car in the Gaza Strip in which were traveling a number of Aksa Martyrs' Brigades operatives. An IDF spokesperson confirmed to 'The Jerusalem Post' that an air strike had been carried out against a known terrorist who had been involved in a number of attacks against Israelis, but did not provide further details. While initial reports had said that the target was killed, Palestinian sources said that he was wounded and in moderate condition. What's new on JPost.com Throughout Tuesday, clashes continued between IDF troops and Palestinians. Tuesday evening, Palestinians opened fire at IDF troops in the northern Gaza Strip. None of the soldiers were wounded, although their vehicle was damaged. The soldiers returned fire. On Tuesday afternoon, a terror attack was thwarted after military policemen arrested a Palestinian carrying two pipe bombs weighing a kilogram each at the Rihan Checkpoint near Jenin. The soldiers' suspicions were aroused by two Palestinians standing at the checkpoint. The troops searched the men and uncovered the pipe bombs, which one of the men had concealed under his clothing. The bombs were detonated in a controlled environment and the men were transferred to the Shin Bet for further interrogation. In two earlier incidents in the Gaza Strip, IDF forces reportedly killed a Palestinian in the southern Gaza Strip town of Rafah, and Palestinians fired two anti-tank missiles at IDF troops operating in northern Gaza. No soldiers were wounded in the incident. Overnight Monday, IDF forces arrested 12 Palestinian fugitives in operations throughout the West Bank.
