Three Hamas militants were killed early Saturday in an Israeli airstrike on a car they were travelling in near the southern Gaza Strip city of Kahn Younis, doctors and Hamas sources said. The Israeli airstrike came a few days of relative calm. Last month the Gaza Strip witnessed an escalation of violence between Israel and Gaza militants, where at least 13 Palestinians were killed and more than 30 wounded. Around 30 Israelis were injured.
