AFP - An Israeli air strike on Gaza on Tuesday evening killed a militant and wounded two civilians, medics and the militant group said.
The strike, east of the central city of Khan Yunis, killed Popular Resistance Committees (PRC) member Khaled Sahmud, 24, after militants fired a mortar round towards Israel, the group said in a statement.
The two people wounded were both civilians, Gaza emergency services spokesman Adham Abu Selmiya said.
Israeli warplanes bombed a suspected weapons manufacturing site in the central Gaza Strip on Monday night after a rocket was fired from the Palestinian territory.
The new mortar and rocket fire came despite a ceasefire that came into force after a spasm of violence that followed a militant attack in Eilat on August 18, which left eight Israelis dead.
Israel responded with a series of air strikes in Gaza, killing 26 Palestinians, and militant groups in the coastal enclave fired dozens of rockets into the Jewish state.
Israel accused the PRC of being behind the Eilat attack but the group denied it was responsible.
