Gaza Sources: 1 Terrorist Dead, 5 Wounded in IAF Strike

Gaza sources said, Friday, that one terrorist was eliminated and five were wounded when a terror cell was hit by the Israel Air Force in the early morning hours, seconds before it could launch a missile from the northern part of the Hamas-controlled area.

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said the cell carried out missile launchings at the beginning of the week. A statement by the IDF held Hamas responsible for attacks originating in Gaza.
