A Palestinian militant has been killed and 10 people injured in a missile strike by Israeli forces on a car in Rafah, southern Gaza, officials say.
Israel says it is considering targeted killings of Palestinian militants
The dead man has been named as Mahmoud Arkan, a member of the armed group Popular Resistance Committees.
Israel vowed to crack down on militant groups after a suicide bombing killed five people on Monday in Netanya.
It also carried out missile strikes in Gaza City on Sunday, said to be in response to Palestinian rocket attacks.
Both Palestinian witnesses and Israeli military sources confirmed the target of Wednesday's missile strike was Mahmoud Arkan.
The 29-year-old is believed to have been responsible for a number of sniper and missile attacks against Israelis.
The identities of those injured in the strike have not been released.
The Popular Resistance Committees is a coalition of militant groups which has been blamed for rocket attacks against Israel in the past.
A spokesman for the movement said it would avenge the killing.
Israeli military officials said this week that targeted killing of Palestinian militants and renewed air strikes in Gaza and the West Bank were options being considered.
Israeli defence officials are also seeking to lift a legal ban on knocking down the homes of suicide bombers.
