Israeli warplanes carried out several raids on Palestinians suspected of firing rockets from the Gaza Strip into Israel, killing five militants, including the head of a Salafist group linked to al-Qaida.
Gaza medics said the first Israeli air strike killed Salafist commander Hisham Saidani, who was in his 40s, and a fellow militant as the two rode a motorcycle late Saturday in northern Gaza.
