An IAF air strike targeted a car in Gaza City on Tuesday, killing two terrorists, witnesses and the military said. Hospital officials said two men in the car were killed, and their bodies were mangled in the blast. The Al Aksa Martyrs Brigades, a violent offshoot of Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah movement, identified the two as Mohammed Abu Shariya and Suheil Al Bakker, both in their early 20s and senior commanders in the group. The IDF said it targeted a car carrying Al Aksa militants who were involved in firing rockets at Israel.
