The IAF struck a terrorist cell in the northern Gaza Strip making final preparations to fire a rocket into Israel Saturday evening, the IDF Spokesman's Office said.

The air strike followed a barrage of rockets fired into southern Israel Saturday, injuring one man and causing damage to a school and factory in Sderot.

Palestinian reports said one person was killed and 10 were wounded in the strike.
