One Palestinian was killed and four others were wounded in an Israeli air strike in Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip on Monday, medical sources and witnesses said.

The air strike in the southern town of Rafah targeted a vehicle carrying members of the Popular Resistance Committee, a small Palestinian militant group, the source said.

An Israeli army spokesman confirmed carrying out a new air raid in the territory ,where the army carried out several strikes late on Sunday in response to renewed militant rocket fire.

The fresh violence comes two weeks after Israel ended a devastating 22 day offensive in Gaza where more than 1,300 Palestinians were killed.
