At least one senior militant was killed and ten other people hurt after an Israeli aircraft fired a missile at a car in the Gaza Strip on Wednesday, according to the Israeli military.

Israeli and Palestinian officials said the Israelis targeted a car carrying Palestinian militants.

A Palestinian official said the missile struck the car shortly after nightfall in the southern town of Rafah.

He said the car carried three members of a group that has carried out numerous attacks against Israel.

Palestinians identified the dead man as Mahmoud Arkan, a field operative in the group. Israel confirmed that he was the target.

Israel has vowed to retaliate for a homicide bombing that killed five people on Monday.
