An "Israel" Air Force missile attack killed two Islamic Jihad operatives in the northern Gaza Strip after dark on Wednesday.
At least five bystanders reported wounded.
The "Israeli" occupation army confirmed the attack was a joint operation with the Shin Bet to target senior Islamic Jihad operative Khaled Khareb Khaled Sha'alan.
Sha'alan succumbed to his wounds and died a short while after the airstrike. A second operative, Hamza al-Najah, was also named as one of the wounded. Both belonged to the Al-Quds Brigades, the military wing of the Islamic Jihad.
The Al-Quds Brigades vowed it would respond to the Beit Lahiya operation.
"The attack proves that the Zionist enemy is not interested in calm, and therefore it must wait for our response and more rockets. This crime will not be ignored," the group said in a statement.
This is the second time since the end of Operation Cast Lead that the occupation army has conducted targeted killings against Palestinian fighters.
