The Israeli military confirmed the attack, which it said targeted militants who were about to launch rockets at Israel.
Israeli "aircraft thwarted a rocket launch in the southern Gaza Strip," a military spokeswoman told AFP.
Last month, a chain of Israeli air strikes and Palestinian rocket salvoes started when Israel killed Zuhair al-Qaisi, head of the Gaza-based Popular Resistance Committees, prompting other militant groups to fire rockets.
Palestinians in Gaza fired more than 310 rockets at Israel, and Israeli war planes carried out dozens of air strikes, killing 25 people, among them 14 members of Islamic Jihad.
