One killed in Israeli air raids
Gaza City - A member of the militant group Islamic Jihad was killed and three other Palestinians were wounded in Israeli air strikes on the Gaza Strip on Saturday, Palestinian medics and witnesses said.
Security sources said three raids targeted Khan Yunis in southern Gaza, with the initial two not causing casualties.
Witnesses said Abed Muhana, 20, a member of Al-Quds Brigades, armed wing of Islamic Jihad, was killed in the raid.
Medics said three other people were wounded but there was no immediate word on their condition.
An Israeli military spokesperson said the aircraft targeted "terrorists preparing to fire rockets at Israel".
On Thursday, two Palestinians were killed in an air strike in the northern Gaza Strip. Israel said its air force targeted a "terrorist squad" that had opened fire on troops in a border area.
That strike came after several days of calm in and around Gaza following a spike in violence last weekend when 12 Palestinian militants and an Israeli civilian were killed.
Militant groups say they are observing an Egyptian-brokered truce agreement but have reserved the right to reply to any Israeli fire, while Israel warns of action against any militants poised to fire rockets across the border.
