Hamas denies involvement in thwarted car bomb attempt
www.chinaview.cn 2006-05-01 20:49:32

    GAZA, May 1 (Xinhua) -- The Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas)on Monday dismissed an Israeli accusation that it was behind a thwarted car bomb attempt against Israeli targets near Gaza's Karni crossing last week.

    Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri told reporters in Gaza that Hamas was not linked to the attack attempt at the Karni commercial crossing on the eastern Gaza Strip border with Israel.

    Last Wednesday, Palestinian security troops stopped an explosive-laden car at the Karni crossing, which attempted to run through the terminal into Israel on the other side of the crossing.

    Unidentified militants in the car exchanged fire with the security troops, wounding three security soldiers. The militants then fled the scene.

    Israeli media reported on Monday that the Israeli army blamed Hamas for being behind the thwarted attack.

    Hamas, which calls for Israel's destruction, won the January Palestinian legislative elections by a landslide and its government was sworn in late March.

    Israel has said that Hamas officials will remain targets of its military operations if there is evidence that they are involved in attacks against the Jewish state. Enditem
