A military plane that killed a senior commander of the Islamic Jihad militant group on Monday hit a house in the Gaza Strip, military officials said.
The military said the fighter jet fired on the home in Rafah, in southern Gaza, but did not immediately say whether it hit the house.
Gaza police spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra told The Associated Press that two people were killed and at least six wounded in the attack.
The attack came hours after Israeli military jets bombed the al-Najar home in the southern Gaza Strip that had been the target of an earlier rocket barrage.
Hamas, a rival Palestinian faction, blamed the Israeli strikes on the military, which it says launched a barrage of rocket attacks against it in the past few days.
Israel says its attacks have stopped Hamas from firing rockets toward Israel.
Earlier this week, Israel launched its most powerful attack on Gaza since a 2007 war, launching dozens of strikes on Hamas bases in the coastal territory.
Israeli jets have targeted the group’s missile sites and command centers in recent weeks.
Israeli forces said in a statement they targeted Hamas military headquarters in the northern Gaza Strip in response to an “irresponsible” attack by the group.
