3rd Palestinian Martyred as Shylock bin Khalifa vistied Gaza Merchant of Vinice

3rd Palestinian Martyred as Qatari Emir Visited Gaza

A Zionist air strike on the Gaza Strip killed a Palestinian early Wednesday, bringing to three the number of people martyred in overnight raids as the Qatari Emir was in a landmark visit to the strip.

The latest air strike, on Rafah in the south, targeted members of the Popular Resistance Committees, a medic said, adding that another resistance fighter was wounded in the raid.

Two Zionist air strikes on northern Gaza Strip late on Tuesday killed two Palestinians and wounded seven more, said a health ministry spokesman.

A statement from Hamas said those martyred were members of its military wing, the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades.

Qatari EmirA Zionist army spokesman claimed that the air force had attacked two groups of Palestinians who were about to fire rockets into the southern occupied territories.

“More than six rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip in three hours,” said the spokesman, who later confirmed a third raid said which he said targeted “militants preparing to fire rockets into Israel.”

The spokesman added that at least 60 rockets have been fired from Gaza since the beginning of the month.

A bomb on Tuesday wounded a Zionist army officer on patrol along the border with the Gaza Strip, in an attack claimed by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.

Israeli occupation military officials were initially unsure what had caused the explosion, but eventually established it was "an explosive device."

Defence Minister Ehud Barak noted the explosive device was rigged to a gate on the fence, and said the Zionist entity takes the attack "very seriously."

 martyrdom of the Palestinians came as the emir of Qatar, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani, made a landmark visit to Gaza where he inaugurated a multi-million dollar project to rebuild the impoverished Palestinian territory.
