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.

    Israel is continuing to target Palestinian resistance

    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 Gaza 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 Israel.

     

    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.
