Israeli Missile Strike on Gaza Adds to Tension
GAZA (Reuters) - An Israeli helicopter fired missiles at the home of a suspected militant in Gaza on Sunday, wounding at least four people and adding to tension in the territory at the heart of a Palestinian leadership crisis.

After more than a week of unprecedented Palestinian turmoil, mediators tried to mend fences between veteran President Yasser Arafat and Prime Minister Ahmed Qurie, who resigned amid the chaos and calls for reforms to a jumble of security forces.

A helicopter fired at least two missiles into a building in Gaza City's Zeitoun neighborhood that residents said was the home of a militant from the Islamic Hamas group, which has sworn to destroy the Jewish state.

The apparent target, Abu Malik Jindiah, escaped unhurt. But four bystanders were wounded, medics said. The explosions tore apart the building and sent up a column of thick, black smoke.

1. The missile attack
Around midday Sunday, Israel Air Force helicopters fired two missiles in the southern district of Gaza City. One missile apparently hit a house in the Zeitoun neighborhood, though the target of the strike was not immediately clear.

Two people, apparently passers-by, were taken to Gaza hospital with light wounds, and two others were treated on the spot.

Palestinian security officials said that the house was empty at the time of the strike, after people who were in it apparently managed to escape. However, the house and its contents were destroyed. The officials said that the target of the strike was apparently a car belonging to the Islamic Jihad activist Abu Waal Jundi, which was destroyed.
