Israeli Gaza Air Strikes Kill Militant Leader
A senior Palestinian militant leader has been killed in an Israeli air strike in Gaza, Israeli and Palestinian sources say.
Zohair al-Qaisi, secretary general of the Popular Resistance Committees (PRC), was targeted because he was planning an attack, the Israelis said.
Another militant was also killed.
The Israeli military later confirmed a second air strike killed two more people it says were preparing to fire rockets into Israel.
Islamic Jihad said the men were part of its military organisation.
The PRC, which represents a number of armed factions aligned with Hamas, has carried out several rocket and grenade attacks against Israel.
Palestinian sources said the second militant was Mahmoud Hanani, another senior member of the PRC.
