The Israeli miltiary says it has killed a senior member of a group indentified with al-Qaida in an airstrike outside the headquarters of Gaza's Hamas police.
The military said the target was 25-year-old Mohammed Namnam of the Army of Islam group. The military statement said the Army of Islam is linked to al-Qaida and world jihad. It said Namnam was involved in attacks against Israelis, and recently, "Namnam was involved with directing a terror attack against American and Israeli targets in the (Egyptian) Sinai Peninsula, in cooperation with Hamas elements in the Gaza Strip."
The Wednesday statement gave no further details.
The Army of Islam is not known to have active links to al-Qaida, though it is said to be inspired by Osama bin Laden's group.
