The Israel Air Force, working with the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency), fired a missile at Gazan terrorists involved in recent attacks on Israel, killing one and injuring two others, Israeli media reported Tuesday.

Hamas affiliated newspaper al-Resalah identified the man as Abdullah Talibani, an operative of Islamic Jihad's Saraya Al-Quds wing in his 20s.

The two terrorists injured in the attack were taken to Amal Adwan Hospital in northern Gaza.

The IDF Spokesman's Office said Hamas was responsible for all terrorist activity coming out of Gaza.

"The IDF will not tolerate attempts to harm Israeli citizens or IDFsoldiers and will continue to operate strongly and decisively against anyone who uses terrorism against Israel," the spokesman said in a statement.

Army radio reported that the militant was in his car when the missile hit, and that the defense establishment was preparing for rockets in response to the attack.
