GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip: Israeli forces attacked a car carrying Islamic Jihad militants near the Jebaliya refugee camp in the northern Gaza Strip on Saturday, wounding one person, the faction said. An airstrike minutes later targeted a rocket launcher ready to fire, the military said, and two civilians were wounded, according to Palestinian health officials.
The first attack by ground forces targeted a rocket squad, the military said. Two rockets were fired from the site at southern Israel earlier in the day, it added.
One militant was wounded, and a second who was traveling in the car escaped before the vehicle was hit, Islamic Jihad said.
The military said the airstrike targeted a rocket launcher armed with a projectile. A prominent Gaza physician and a 21-year-old civilian were hurt in the attack, according to Dr. Moaiya Hassanain of Gaza’s Health Ministry
