Israel confirmed it had carried out the attack on the Hammas military chief. They also warned locals in Gaza to expect more strikes.
SOUNDBITE: Israeli Army Spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Avital Leibovitch saying:
"The goal of the operation is to defend Israeli people and also target and cripple those terror organizations responsible for the ongoing rocket fire"
Palestinians say a total of nine people were killed including a seven-year-old girl.
