One Palestinian was killed and three were wounded on Wednesday night in a series of Israeli airstrikes on Gaza Strip, medics, security sources and witnesses said.

Mo'aweya Hassanein, chief of emergency and ambulance services in the Palestinian ministry of health said on telephone that one Palestinian was killed and two were wounded in an Israeli airstrike on northern Gaza Strip.

Witnesses in the area said the rocket targeted a group of Hamas militants trying to launch homemade rockets from the area at southern Israel, adding that rescue teams carried one dead and two wounded to a nearby hospital.

Another Israeli airstrike targeted a car of three militants, witnesses said, adding that the rocket fired by an Israeli aircraft missed the car, which fled the scene. No injuries were reported.

Palestinian security sources closed to Hamas said that an Israeli aircraft struck a Palestinian blacksmith store with rockets in central Gaza Strip, slightly wounding a Palestinian woman but causing severe destruction to the place.

Earlier Wednesday, al-Qassam Brigades, Hamas movement's armed wing claimed responsibility for launching 26 homemade rockets and mortar shells at Israeli towns on southern Israel and Israeli communities closed to Gaza.

On Tuesday, Israel killed nine Palestinians in southern Gaza Strip, all are Hamas members, including seven killed in an Israeli airstrike on a Hamas police base, and two shot dead by Israeli soldiers east of Rafah town.
