Two Aksa Martyrs Brigades operatives were killed and three others were wounded in an IAF missile strike which targeted a car in the northern Gaza Strip after nightfall Monday.
Paramedics and witnesses said the missile destroyed the car and incinerated the two men inside. Three bystanders were injured in the blast, they said.
The targeted vehicle was a yellow minibus traveling on a farm road. The area is often used for firing rockets at Israel.
The IDF confirmed that it carried out an airstrike in northern Gaza.
The IDF has stepped up airstrikes in recent days, killing five terror operatives, after repeated rocket attacks at Israeli towns from Gaza.
