Six Palestinians killed by Israeli fire since border attack
An Israeli air strike killed one Hamas fighter and wounded five in the northern Gaza Strip on Sunday, the Palestinian group and medics said. The attack, confirmed by the Israeli army, brings to six the number of Hamas gunmen killed in Israeli air strikes since members from the group drove bomb-laden vehicles into an Israeli border crossing on Saturday.
Meanwhile, Hamas considered Sunday the Israeli army air strikes on Hamas fighters in recent days as an indication of Israel's failure to strike such fighters in the field. Media spokesman of Hamas in northern Gaza Strip, Abdelatif Qannou', told the press that the recent Israeli air strikes on fighters signal a "genuine Israeli policy failure" to strike back against the "painful resistance attacks," the latest of which was the attack on the Kerem Shalom crossing, where 13 soldiers were wounded.
