Israeli aircraft struck five targets in the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip on Tuesday, killing 1 militant and wounding four other Palestinians, according to a Palestinian official.

The military said four targets were hit in retaliation for rocket fire on southern Israel on Monday night that caused no injuries. In a separate strike, Israeli aircraft hit a group of armed men preparing to launch a rocket attack, the military said.

Palestinian health official Adham Abu Salmia said the casualties included three militants and a 5-year-old boy.
