Three Palestinians were killed early Monday morning when Israeli army jet fighters attacked a car near the house of Hamas leader and deposed Palestinian Primer Isma'il Haniyya, located in Gaza city.  The attack came just as Palestinian and Israeli leaders were set to meet and discuss peace terms in Jerusalem.

Witnesses said that they saw three men driving a car near Haniyya's home when jet fighters fired two missiles at the car.

Medical sources stated that one of the men died in the attack while the other two died later in the hospital. The medical sources identified two of the men as; Nidal Al Amodi, 35, Maher Al Mabhoh, while the identity of the third man is still unknown due to the severe burns on his face .

Palestinian sources in Gaza announced on Monday morning that the three men killed were resistance fighters from Al Islam, a new Islamic resistance group in the Gaza strip.
