GAZA, (Reuters) – An Israeli missile strike killed a Hamas militant in the northern Gaza Strip on Saturday, Hamas and residents said.

Hamas said a member of its armed wing was killed and three others were wounded in the Israeli attack in the northern Gaza town of Beit Hanoun.

An Israeli army spokesman in Tel Aviv said the strike was aimed at a group of Gaza militants that had launched a rocket at Israel.

Israel’s military frequently conducts raids and air strikes in the Gaza Strip to try to stop militants from firing rockets into southern Israel.
