The Israel Air Force struck targets in the Gaza Strip for a second time on Monday evening after an earlier attack killed two Islamic Jihad operatives.

Palestinian sources claimed that the IAF strike killed two additional Palestinians in Beit Hanoun in northern Gaza, bringing the total number of dead killed in air strikes on Monday to four. The IDF Spokesman's Office stated that the airstrike targeted terrorists in the midst of firing a rocket at Israeli civilians.

The Bethlehem-based Ma'an News Agency reported that the second airstrike killed two civilians and wounded three other people.

The IDF said that the two Islamic Jihad men killed in the earlier airstrike were part of a terror cell responsible for recent shooting attacks along the border.
