GAZA, April 18 (Xinhuanet) -- Al-Aqsa brigades, the military wing of the Fatah movement said on Sunday that the Palestinian who was killed overnight near the southern Gaza Strip Jewish settlement of Kissufim was one of its members.
The brigades said in a leaflet that the Palestinian is Nael Omar, a 22-year-old resident of Al-Shatea refuge camp, north of the strip, adding that he was killed while was setting an ambush for an Israeli military jeep near the settlement.
The leaflet, meanwhile, said that Omar had succeeded in targeting the Israeli military jeep, saying that all the soldiers inside the jeep were injured.
The brigades said that the attack comes in line with "instant response to the Israeli assassination against Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) leader Abdel-Aziz Rantisi late on Saturday."
The Israel Army said that it shot dead overnight a Palestinian near Kissufim Jewish settlement, adding that he possessed a Kalashnikov. Enditem
