Five Palestinians were killed in the Gaza Strip today in an Israeli air strike, Gaza emergency medical services spokesman Adham Abu Selmeya told reporters.

The strike was launched against a squad preparing to launch rockets into southern Israel, the Israeli army said in an e- mailed statement. The same group was responsible for firing a rocket into Israel on Wednesday, the army said.

The Islamic Jihad militant group said in a text message that five of its members were killed in an Israeli air strike on one of its training bases, including a senior commander of the movement. Islamic Jihad said it would retaliate for the attack.
