An Israeli airstrike narrowly missed killing Hamas’ spiritual leader, Sheik Ahmed Yassin. Hamas vowed revenge after Saturday’s failed strike, which came during a meeting between Yassin and his top echelon at the Islamic group. The strike reportedly wounded Yassin, a blind paraplegic, and 15 others. Israel has sealed off the West Bank and Gaza Strip to prevent more suicide bombings.
