Gaza terrorists groups were in disagreement on Tuesday as to who was responsible for a missile attack on an IDF jeep last Saturday.

The Popular Resistance Committees (PRC) terrorist organization published a video on Tuesday which it claimed documents the attack on the IDF jeep.

The video showed the missile as it flew toward the jeep and hit it. YouTube later removed the video from its website, saying it violated its terms of service.

Later on, however, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) said that the PRC video was fake and claimed responsibility for the attack on the jeep.

A report on Army Radio noted that the PRC had claimed responsibility for the attack despite the fact that the PFLP had already claimed responsibility for it several hours after it occurred.

The different claims of responsibility for the same attack reveal the tension and mistrust among the factions in Gaza, noted the report.

Four soldiers were wounded in Saturday’s attack. One soldier was very seriously wounded and another soldier suffered moderate-to-serious wounds. Both were evacuated to Soroka Hospital in Be'er Sheva.

Two other soldiers were in light to moderate condition, suffering from shrapnel wounds. They were evacuated to Barzilai Hospital in Ashkelon.

Doctors were able to save the life of the soldier who was seriously wounded. He had suffered serious wounds to his head and eyes.

On Tuesday, doctors said the soldier had seen some improvement in his condition.
