A Palestinian health official says an Israeli airstrike has killed two people in the southern Gaza Strip. The Israeli military said it was looking into the report.

A Hamas security official said the strike hit a car that belonged to the group's interior ministry. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the press.

One of the dead was identified as a merchant who imported goods through smuggling tunnels along Egypt's border. The other victim's identity was not immediately known. Health official Ashraf al-Kidra said another person was wounded in Wednesday night's incident.

Israel and Gaza's ruling Hamas fought a three-week war in 2008. Since then, violent flare-ups have occurred occasionally between Israel and militant groups operating in the Gaza Strip.
