The IAF targeted a car in Gaza City after nightfall Thursday, killing three people, a Palestinian hospital official and the IDF said.
The car was obliterated by the blast, and rescue workers extracted a dismembered body. Hamas police officers kept people away from the car.
Dr. Moaiya Hassanain of the Palestinian Health Ministry said three people were killed. They were not immediately identified.
The Israeli military said the target was a cell of Palestinian terrorists that had fired rockets at Israel earlier.
