The death toll of Sunday's Israeli attack on Palestinian militants north of Gaza City increased to two after one of the three injured died of wound, medical sources said Sunday.

Medical workers in Gaza said that one of the three men who were injured in Sunday's attack on Gaza died of wound a few hours after the attack occurred.

Palestinian security sources in the Hamas-ruled territory reported earlier that a Palestinian militant was killed and three others were injured in an Israeli raid north of Gaza City.

The Israeli radio quoted an army spokesperson as saying that Israeli warplanes hit a group of Palestinian militants who were about to launch homemade rockets on targets inside Israel, Israeli radio reported.

However, witnesses and security sources in Gaza said in earlier reports that they saw an Israel gunboat fired at least one missile against shore targets.

Gaza militant groups strongly opposed the direct peace talks between the Palestinian National Authority (PNA) and Israel and urged for the resumption of military action against the Jewish state.

Minor Palestinian armed groups routinely fire missiles to neighboring Israeli communities and Israel responds to such attacks by targeting militants, weapon stockpiles and smuggling tunnels.
