Palestinian sources reported that three Palestinians were killed and several others were wounded as the Israeli Air Force gun ships fired missiles at their can in the West Bank city of Jenin Monday afternoon.

Eyewitnesses said, three children were injured as the Apache fired at the car at the southern entrance of the city and caused a big damage.

The dead are Sheikh Mahmoud Abu Khaliefeh 25, Amjad Hosni 22, and Yamin Faisal, and were all identified as resistance operatives of the Aqsa Martyr Brigades in the city.

Palestinian sources said, Abu Khaliefeh is the deputy of Zakaria Zubeidi, the leader of the Brigades in Jenin area and added that Hosni was got married only last week.

In his first comment on the assassination, Zakaria Al-Zubeidi said, vowed a special response to this assassination.

‘I do not want to say, there will be an earthquake or whatsoever, however, I say, there will be a different response to this crime’ Al Zubeidi said.

Al-Zubeidi has been declared wanted by the Israeli military since the beginning of the second Intifada as they accuse him of standing behind several attacks against Israeli targets.
