Israeli air strike kills Gaza militant

Israeli military says its aircraft have struck two Gaza militants who had fired mortars at Israel.



Jerusalem: The Israeli military says its aircraft have struck two Gaza militants who had fired mortars at southern Israel.

It says the militants were hit on Wednesday shortly after the mortar attacks. There was no immediate word from Gaza on casualties.

Earlier on Wednesday, a separate Israeli airstrike killed a militant from the Islamic Jihad faction, according to Hamas security officials.

The Israeli military says the man had smuggled weapons into Gaza and was involved in militant activity in Egypt`s Sinai peninsula, near Israel`s southern border. It didn`t elaborate.

A militant incursion into Israel from Sinai last week killed eight Israelis. That was followed by Palestinian rocket attacks and Israeli airstrikes that have not stopped despite a ceasefire reached on Sunday.
