Israel kills salafist leader in Gaza Strip
The most important Salafi leader in the Gaza Strip is one of two militants killed in a raid Saturday by Israeli warplanes in the Gaza Strip, said Palestinian security services officials. Alsadeny Hisham, 43, holder of Jordanian nationality who is considered the leader of the "Council of the Mujahedeen al Shura", was killed and another Salafist from the same group in a targeted attack in Jabaliya in northern Gaza Strip. The two men were traveling on a motorcycle, added the same sources.
Israel said they were responsible for firing Grad rockets on the town of Netivot last night, and were involved in an attack on the border fence in June killing a worker.
According to Israeli police, the Grad fell in a yard causing minor damage.
