Israeli air-strike in Gaza kills 3 Islamic Jihad operatives

Palestinian medical officials in the northern Gaza Strip say an IAF airstrike has just killed three Islamic Jihad operatives. Palestinian officials say the three men were members of a rocket launching squad. They say the air-strike occurred in a crowded area about 150 meters from a hospital. Some 12 bystanders were wounded. The IDF has no immediate comment. But it has repeatedly accused terrorists of seeking cover in crowded civilian areas.
