Israel fires on militants in Gaza strip

Text size Aa Aa

An Israeli aircraft fired a missile into the Gaza strip on Sunday wounding two Palestinian militants and eight bystanders.

The militants, named by the Israeli military as Talat Jarbi and Mohammed Makawi, were riding a motorcycle near the town of Rafah which borders Egypt’s Sinai peninsula when they were hit.

Israel claims they are members of “global Jihadist” groups, and had for years been involved in attacking Israeli civilians and troops, as well as manufacturing weapons.

Among those wounded in the attack were an elderly man, a woman and three children.
