Islamic Jihad is the second-most powerful armed group in the Gaza Strip, after Hamas, which runs the Palestinian enclave. "This was neutralized in the morning by the Israeli Defence Forces", a military statement said.
Palestinian media reported that the airstrikes hit a number of Hamas positions in the areas of Rafah and Khan Younis.
At least 118 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire in the Gaza Strip since mass protests and clashes broke out on March 30, according to figures from the Gazan health ministry.

No injuries were reported either from local sources or the IDF.
