Aug. 5 - Mourners hold a funeral procession for the Palestinian gunman linked to an Egypt raid who was killed in an Israeli air strike. Deborah Lutterbeck reports.
A funeral service is held in Gaza Sunday for a Palestinian gunman who was killed in an Israeli air strike earlier in the day. The air strike wounded another gunman as the two rode a motorbike near the Egyptian border. The Israeli military said one of those targeted, Ahmed Said Ismail, was behind the June 18th attack along the Israel-Egypt border in which an Israeli civilian was killed. Hospital officials say Ismail was critically wounded and a second man was killed. Both were members of a radical Islamist militant group. Israel has previously accused Palestinian militants in Gaza of involvement in militant activity in Sinai, where insecurity has spread since the U.S.-aligned Egyptian president, Hosni Mubarak, fell to a citizen revolt last year.
