    A missile missed the vehicle and hit a nearby home instead, wounding the child on Monday.

    The house itself, in the West Bank town of Jenin, was severely damaged.

    Two wanted members of the Palestinian resistance group, al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, escaped uninjured from the strike.

    One of those in the vehicle has been identified as Mahmud Abu Khalifah, a local al-Aqsa leader.

    The al-Aqsa Brigades is an armed offshoot of Palestinian Authority chairman Yasir Arafat's Fatah movement.

    There was no immediate comment on the strike from the Israeli military.
