Israeli attack kills three Hamas men
An Israeli airstrike on the Gaza Strip killed three Hamas activists overnight, medics said Tuesday. The attack targeted a Hamas training camp in the center of the territory, they said, according to AFP.
The victims were all members of Hamas' armed wing, the Ezzedine Al-Qassam Brigades. Al-Aqsa hospital sources confirmed that Abed al-Rahman Abu Gaza, Sameer al-Dakran and Salman al-Hiuli were the victims. One of them died instantly and the other two died of wounds in hospital, they added.
It should be mentioned that earlier this week, Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak told ministers he had authorized military action in Gaza Strip, including the targeting of "manned military Hamas targets."
