An IAF aircraft attacked a car carrying Palestinian gunmen on Monday, wounding two members of Islamic Jihad and the Gaza commander of the Al Aksa Martyrs' Brigades, Islamic Jihad said. The group said two other operatives in the vehicle escaped unscathed, one from Islamic Jihad and the other from Al Aksa, a violent offshoot of Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah group. Medics said four civilian passers-by were injured in the raid, about 10 kilometers (six miles) south of Gaza City. The IDF confirmed carrying out a strike but did not give details of the target, other than to say the attack was part of operations against "terrorist activity." Last Thursday, IAF air strikes throughout the Gaza Strip killed five operatives from Hamas and the Islamic Jihad, and wounded an additional six.
