Israel fires missile in Gaza camp, killing two Islamic Jihad militants

Israeli forces fired missiles in a Gaza refugee camp after nightfall Thursday, Palestinian residents said, and two people were killed, including a leading Islamic Jihad militant, Shadi Mohanna.

Witnesses said the target was a white Subaru car in the Jebaliya refugee camp, a sprawling shantytown next to Gaza City. Mohanna, the Islamic Jihad field commander in northern Gaza, was killed along with his assistant, Mohammed Ghazaineh.

The Israeli military refused to comment. Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat said, "We want to condemn this attack and warn about the consequences of this escalation."

Earlier Thursday, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon said Israel would carry out a relentless campaign against Palestinian militant groups, a day after an Islamic Jihad suicide bomber killed five Israelis in the Israeli town of Hadera.
