Gaza City: A Palestinian health official in Gaza says four men have been killed in an Israeli airstrike.

Ashraf al-Kidra says the airstrike hit the central Gaza district of Maghazi on Wednesday evening.

The Israeli military said the men were militants about to fire rockets toward nearby Jewish communities.

It was not known to which group the men belonged.

Israel and Gaza`s ruling Hamas have had a tenuous, unwritten truce since a three-week war more than three years ago. Despite that, militants some from Hamas and others from splinter groups continue to fire rockets at southern Israel, triggering Israeli airstrikes.

The frequency of the attacks is considerably lower than before the war, when Israel sent forces into Gaza to try to stop the barrages.
