An Israeli airstrike has killed at least three Palestinians in the south of the Gaza Strip, medical staff and witnesses say.

The target was a car in the area of Khan Younis town early Saturday, a Press TV correspondent reported.

The identities of the dead were not immediately known.

On Wednesday, Israeli fighter jets fired several rockets at two Palestinians as they were riding a motorcycle on the road from Khan Younis to Rafah, killing one person and injuring another.

Israeli forces have carried out large numbers of ground and air attacks on Gaza since the end of “Operation Cast Lead” against the enclave.

More than 1,400 Palestinians were killed during the three-week Israeli land, sea and air assault in the impoverished coastal sliver during the winter of 2008-2009. The attack inflicted USD 1.6 billion damage to the Gazan economy.
