Two Palestinian militants have been killed in an Israeli missile attack on their car. The incident occured in the Gaza Strip. The Israeli security forces say the vehicle was packed with rockets and the men were planning to use them at any moment.
The two men actually managed to get out of their car before Israeli forces fired at the vehicle but a second rocket hit them as they tried to escape on foot. The Israelis say the men belonged to the militant group Islamic Jihad which has frequently fired rockets at Israeli homes from inside the Gaza Strip. Since the Israelis forced Jewish settlers to move out of Gaza , its used warplanes and unmanned aircraft to track down militants in the area.
