PRC Leader ‘Survives Car Bomb Attack’


Popular Resistance Committees leader Ayman al-Shashniya survived a car bombing outside his Gaza home on Friday night, a spokesman of the movement said.

Al-Shashniya was lightly injured when an explosive device planted in his parked car was set off around 11 p.m. damaging the house with him inside, spokesman Abu Mujahed said.

A bomb squad from the Gaza-based government is investigating the blast, Abu Mujahed added.

Al-Shashniya had no known enemies apart from Israel, Abu Majahed said.

The PRC was one of the groups which helped capture an Israeli soldier who was traded this week in exchange for 1,027 Palestinians held in Israeli jails.


Launched in 2005, Ma'an News Agency (MNA) publishes news around the clock in Arabic and English, and is among the most browsed websites in the Palestinian territories, with over 3 million visits per month.
