GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip – Israeli helicopters fired two missiles at the home of a Hamas (search) militant in the Gaza Strip (search) on Sunday, wounding at least 11 people, witnesses and rescue workers said.
Ambulances rushed to the home of Abdel Salam Abu Musa, a member of the Hamas military wing, and neighbors searched the rubble for victims. It was unclear whether he was among the wounded.
Witnesses said they saw several helicopters circling in the area, on a road between Khan Younis and Rafah, before the attack. It appeared to be the latest of Israel's targeted strikes on Hamas militants whom Prime Minister Ariel Sharon (search) has said are "marked for death."
The Israeli military has carried out a series of such strikes on Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip in the past three weeks, killing 12 Hamas members and five bystanders.
The group's 68-year-old spiritual leader, Sheik Ahmed Yassin, was lightly injured in an Israeli bombing on Saturday. The group has promised to exact revenge for the strikes.
