Saturday, January 3, 2009

GAZA: An Israeli air strike in the Gaza Strip killed a senior commander of Hamas's armed wing, the Islamist group said on Saturday.
Hamas said Abu Zakaria al-Jamal died early on Saturday from wounds sustained in an Israeli air strike overnight.
Israeli warplanes continued to pound Gaza as the assault on Hamas entered its second week, with the Islamist group's leader warning of a "black destiny" if ground troops are sent in.
The armed wing of Hamas said its fighters had repelled a patrol of Israeli special forces troops trying to cross the border into the Gaza Strip.
A spokesman for the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades told foreign news agency that fighters spotted an unspecified number of Special Forces trying to enter the Shijaiyah border neighbourhood of eastern Gaza City at around 1 am (2300 GMT Friday).
He said the fighters fired six mortar rounds at the Israelis, who returned fire with small arms and retreated. He said there were no casualties.
