GAZA, Sep 26 (Reuters) Israel's air force killed four Palestinian militants in an attack on their car in the Gaza Strip today, witnesses and Palestinian security sources said.
They identified the dead as members of Army of Islam, a fringe militant group. Earlier reports had suggested the car belonged to an armed wing of the ruling Islamist Hamas.
Israeli military officials had no immediate comment on the incident, which followed a surge in cross-border rocket fire from Gaza.
