Israeli attack kills six Hamas members
At least six Hamas members were killed in an Israeli missile strike on a Hamas police position in the southern Gaza Strip on Tuesday, the movement said. According to Reuters, the Israeli army confirmed the air strike.
Earlier, Palestinian gunners in the Gaza Strip fired two Qassam rockets at western Israel, striking two factories in the industrial area of the southern city of Sderot. Fatah and the Popular Resistance Committees (PRC), claimed responsibility for firing the rockets.
According to Israel Radio, several people were treated for shock.
In a statement faxed to the media, the PRC and Fatah armed wing said the rocket-fire was in response to the killing of Amer Qarmout, a senior PRC commander, in an Israeli strike on Monday.
