PRC claims that they shot jeep on Saturday with a SAM

Hamas' Palestine Times reports that the Nasser Saladin Brigades wing of the Popular Resistance Committees has released details - and a video - of the attack on an Israeli jeep on Saturday that started this last round of fighting.

According to their statement, it was not a Kornet anti-tank missile they shot, but a guided anti-aircraft missile. They did not specify the type.

They also released a video of the attack:

They claim that they did not see any survivors, although they did see soldiers escape the jeep nearby, so they believe that Israel is covering up the deaths of those on the vehicle.

I cannot tell from the video what kind of weapon was fired. It seems slow for an anti-aircraft rocket, though, and terrorists don't exactly have a great track record of telling the truth.
