4 Palestinians Killed by Israeli Missile Attack on

A Palestinian resistance fighter of the Al-Qassam
brigades, the armed wing of the Hamas movement, died early on Sunday
morning of wounds he he sustained earlier yesterday.
Mohammad Yousuf Hammouda, 25, was pronounced dead after having been hit,
along with three other resistance fighters, with an Israeli warplane's
missile in northern Gaza.
Yesterday, an Israeli warplane killed Basel Shabet, Mohammad Al-Sha'er
and Hassan Shaqoura, of the media branch of the Saraya aL-Quds brigade,
the armed wing of the Islamic Jihad.
From its part, the Sarray Al-Quds Brigades vowed in a statement, faxed
to press, to retaliate to the killing of its members, warning of more
resistance attacks against the Israeli occupation.
Medical sources confirmed that five people, including two women, were
yesterday transferred to Al-Shifa hospital in Gaza city, after an
Israeli occupation forces drone fired a missile towards the vicinity of
Al-Shayma' local school in northern Beit Lahiya town.
The Israeli attack yesterday brought a two-week lull in violence to an
end, thus more tension is likely in the upcoming period, as Israel has
so far shunned any ceasefire offer by Palestinian resistance groups in
Gaza including that of the ruling Hamas.

Three Palestinians have been reportedly killed on
Saturday after an Israeli occupation drone fired a missile towards the
vicinity of a local school in eastern Gaza city.
Witnesses said that the air strike targeted the Al-Jaro street near the
Ibn Al-arqam school to the east of Gaza city, as medics confirmed three
people were killed in the air strike.
The Israeli air strike came after buzzing of an Israeli drone has been
non-stop in the area, witnesses added.
In the meantime, three other Palestinians were reported by medics as
wounded after an Israeli tank shelled the Al-Shayima' school in the
northern Gaza Strip city of Beit Lahiya.
Dr. Mo'awiya Abu Hassanain, chief of emergency and ambulance department
at Gaza's health ministry, made clear that one of the wounded is in a
critical condition as the two others are seriously wounded.
Today's air strike on Gaza is the first in almost two weeks of calm in
the region after the Israeli occupation army had killed earlier this
month more that 120 Palestinians, including 30 children, in a large
ground offensive on northern Gaza.
