Israeli forces attacked a car carrying Islamic Jihad terrorists near the Jebaliya refugee camp in the northern Gaza Strip on Saturday, wounding one person, the faction said. A second attack wounded two civilians, Palestinian health officials said.
The IDF said the first ground attack targeted Palestinian terrorists who had a rocket launcher in their possession. Two rockets were fired from the site at southern Israel earlier in the day, the military said.
A second terrorist traveling in the car escaped before the vehicle was hit, Islamic Jihad said.
The military had no immediate information on the second attack, in which a prominent Gaza physician and a 21-year-old civilian were hurt, according to Dr. Moaiya Hassanain of Gaza's Health Ministry.
