Israeli air strike kills 4 militants in Gaza
GAZA, Sept 26 (Reuters) - Israel's air force killed four Palestinian militants in an attack on their car in the Gaza Strip on Wednesday, witnesses and Palestinian security sources said.

They identified the dead as members of Army of Islam, a fringe militant group. Earlier reports had suggested the car belonged to an armed wing of the ruling Islamist Hamas.
Yes, I'm sure they had nothing to do with Hamas.

PressTV says a child has been injured. Get a load of this account.
A Palestinian child has been injured in an Israeli air strike against rocket launchers in the northern Gaza Strip, witnesses said.

The Zionist air force carried out three attacks on Wednesday morning in the north of the Gaza Strip, an army spokesman said.

A spokesman for the Islamic Jihad movement said that several of its members managed to escape the strike.

A rocket fired from Gaza struck Israel on Wednesday without causing casualties or damage.

The al-Quds Brigades, the Islamic Jihad Movement's military wing, fires most of the rockets from Gaza into Israel in response to Israeli incursions into the Gaza Strip and West Bank.
UPDATE: LGFer insanity police tipped me to the above photo, though it's tough to tell from Ynet whether it's an archive shot. Whatever, serves its purpose. They appear to be doing a thorough inspection of the former vehicle.

UPDATE II: More scenes from a car swarm. Lots of car inspections going on there.
