The Israel Air Force (IAF) struck a terrorist cell that was making final preparations for firing a rocket into Israel, an IDF spokeswoman said on Saturday night.

The terror cell was struck by a missile fired by an aircraft. The strike occurred in Ak-Karara, east of Khan Younis, in southern Gaza.

Channel 10 said one Islamic Jihad member was killed and two were injured. Palestinian sources said three were wounded in the attack in which they reported that three missiles were fired into an agricultural area.

The terror organization threatened to respond to the strike.
