Israeli Strike Kills Islamic Jihad Leader
A leader of the armed wing of the Islamic Jihad has been killed in an Israeli air strike on a car in Gaza City. Witnesses said his car exploded moments pulling away from the kerb near the Islamic University of Gaza in the centre of Gaza City.
Khalid al-Dahduh, also known as Abu al-Walid, was killed on Wednesday when the vehicle in which he was travelling exploded in the strike. He was the leader of the Al-Quds Brigades in the
Strip. There was no immediate comment from the Israeli military. Islamic Jihad, which boycotted a Palestinian general election last January in which its larger rival Hamas won a massive victory, has been behind the last six bombings in Gaza . Al-Dahduh's death brings to 4969 the number of people killed since the outbreak of the Palestinian uprising in 2000. Most of the victims have been Palestinian.
