Three wounded in Gaza rocket attack

Three people were wounded when a rocket slammed into the house of a senior member of a Palestinian group in Gaza City on Monday, witnesses have said.

    The PPRC mainly consists of former Fatah supporters

    The house, which was partly destroyed by the force of the blast, belonged to Abu Yusuf Kuka who heads the Palestinian Popular

    Resistance

    Committees' armed wing - the Victorious Salah al-Din Brigades.

    The organisation mainly consists of former supporters of

    Palestinian Yasir Arafat's Fatah movement.

    The group said Kuka was not wounded and that the three

    moderately injured Palestinians were members of the Brigades.

    It

    accused Israel of having fired the rocket from the nearby sea.

    However, an army spokesman declined to comment on the incident.

    Palestinian police cordoned off the area after the blast in Gaza

    City's Shaati refugee camp.
