Gaza, Jun 13: An Israeli missile fired from an aircraft hit a vehicle carrying a Palestinian rocket-launching squad in Gaza today, causing at least 10 casualties, witnesses said.

''There was an attack on a car that was heading to fire rockets at Israel,'' an army spokeswoman said in Tel Aviv.

Witnesses said they saw rockets in the wreckage of a yellow van and at least 10 people were hurt in the attack east of Gaza City.

Local residents said the men in the vehicle belonged to the Islamic Jihad group.

Palestinian militants in Gaza have been carrying out daily rocket attacks against southern Israel. The Israeli military has hit back with missile strikes and artillery.
