The AP reports that an error in targeting resulted in an accident during which Israeli jets fired on an armored car near Gaza that turned out to have Western journalists among its passengers.

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) -- Israeli aircraft fired two missiles early Sunday at an armored car belonging to the Reuters news agency, wounding five people, including two cameramen, Palestinian witnesses and hospital officials said.

The Israeli army said it did not realize the car's passengers were journalists and only attacked because the vehicle was driving in a suspicious manner near Israeli troops in the middle of a combat zone.

This incident illustrates just how strained Israeli-Palestinian relations really are. The IDF is clearly making all possible efforts to stifle the amount of new warfighting supplies that are being smuggled in to the Gaza strip. It's too early to tell just how much this mistake will further damage the peace process. In the future, we may expect Western journalists to hesitate before they go in to such troubled areas.
