GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Two Palestinians were killed and two others wounded on Friday afternoon after Israel's air force bombed a car traveling near al-Shati refugee camp in Gaza City.
A Ma'an reporter said that an Israeli plane targeted a black Kia vehicle with two missiles, killing Muhammad al-Fasih and Usama al-Hassumi.
Ashraf al-Qidra, the Gaza spokesperson for the Ministry of Health, said the bodies of the two men, who were residents of the Sheikh Radwan neighborhood of Gaza City, were taken to Shifa medical center.
The killing is the first targeted assassination by Israel since the formation of the Palestinian national unity government at the beginning of June.
The two were apparently affiliated with the Al-Nasser Salah al-Din Brigades, the military wing of the Popular Resistance Committees. more
