The Israeli Air Force targeted a terror cell this evening that was preparing to launch rockets from Gaza towards Israel. Officials in the Gaza Strip said two Palestinians were killed and two others wounded in the strike, AFP reported.

Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) identified one of those killed, Musab Musa Za’anin, as a member of the group’s military wing, the al Quds Brigades. The second Palestinian killed in the strike was identified as Sharif Nasser, who was claimed by the Mujahideen Brigades as one of its fighters.
