Israeli jets bombard militant camps in Gaza | Newstime Africa

GAZA CITY, February 26, 2011 (AFP) – Israeli warplanes bombed militant training camps in the Gaza Strip for a second time Saturday, wounding four people, including a toddler, Palestinian officials and medics said. The jets hit two training camps of the Ezzedine al-Qassem Brigades, the armed wing of Gaza’s ruling Hamas movement, in the southern city of Rafah, Hamas security officials said. A family of four, including an 18-month-old girl, were lightly wounded, after their vehicle was hit by shrapnel as they were driving by one of the targets, Adham Abu Selmiya, a spokesman for the Hamas-run rescue services, told AFP. A third air strike hit an Islamic Jihad facility west of Khan Yunis, witnesses said. The raids came after pre-dawn strikes against two other training camps of the hardline Islamic Jihad group.
