An Israeli airstrike on an Islamic Jihad training camp in the southern Gaza Strip has killed five militants.

Islamic Jihad says a commander of the Palestinian militant group was among those killed in the attack Saturday.

The Israeli military confirmed the airstrike, saying it targeted militants preparing to launch rockets at Israel. It said those hit were responsible for firing rockets that landed in Israel on Wednesday. That attack caused no casualties.

Palestinian doctors say at least two other people were wounded in the airstrike Saturday.
