GAZA - An Israeli air strike wounded a Palestinian gunman in the Gaza Strip before dawn on Saturday, medics in the Hamas Islamist controlled territory said.

The Israeli military had no immediate comment on the report by a rescue crew that an aerial attack under cover of darkness had targeted Gaza militants preparing to fire a rocket at Israel east of Gaza City, injuring one of them.

Israel has stepped up its air strikes on coastal Gaza this week in response to a resurgence in rocket strikes at Israeli towns that have caused no injury but disrupted routine.
