Gaza car explosion kills one


JERUSALEM (JTA) — One Palestinian was killed and two were injured when a car exploded in the Gaza Strip.

Explosives in the car caused the explosion, Ha’aretz reported.

Other reports said that Israel Air Force aircraft were seen in the area near Gaza City before the blast. The Israeli military denied army activity in the area at the time of the explosion.

Palestinian groups have not blamed Israel for the blast. 

Last Friday, the Israel Air Force bombed a rocket-launching squad in Gaza as it prepared to fire on southern Israel, killing one and wounding three.
