Israel kills Fatah commander conducting missile attacks

GAZA CITY — Israel has assassinated a leading Fatah commander responsible for missile attacks on the Jewish state.

An Israel Air Force helicopter fired a missile that struck a Palestinian Authority security vehicle in the Jabalya refugee camp north of Gaza City. The strike on Tuesday killed a Fatah commander and a leading Hamas operative.

The Fatah commander was identified as Hassan Madhoun, head of operations in the northern Gaza Strip. Madhoun was said to have ordered numerous rocket and missile attacks on Israel as well as a suicide bombing of the Ashdod port in 2004.

The Hamas operative was Fawzi Abu Al Qara. Al Qara was said to have served as a liasion with Fatah and Islamic Jihad in Kassam-class short-range missile attacks from the northern Gaza Strip.
