#3 Update An Israeli airstrike killed the commander of the militant group behind the abduction of Israeli soldier Gilad Schalit and a second militant in Gaza on Friday in the highest profile attack against the coastal strip in months.
The Israeli military confirmed the strike, saying the slain commander Zuhair al-Qaissi was plotting an infiltration attack into Israel similar to one his group carried out in August that killed eight people and injured 40 more. In a statement, the military warned Gaza's Hamas rulers against any retaliation for the strike.
Palestinian witnesses said Israeli drones were seen hovering above just moments before a vehicle exploded into flames, in a southern district of Gaza City.

#5 Update Now up to eight.
Israeli airstrikes kill 8 in Gaza Israeli air strikes on the Gaza Strip Friday killed eight Palestinian militants, including the head of a radical group, while mortar and rocket fire from Gaza pounded the Jewish state.
One strike, on a car travelling in the Tel El-Hawa neighbourhood west of Gaza City, killed the head of the militant Popular Resistance Committees, Zohair al-Qaisi, and fellow-member Mahmud Hanani, the group said.
Both the PRC and the military wing of Hamas threatened retribution for Qaisi's death.
A second air raid, on the east side of the city, killed Obeid al-Gharabli, Mohammed Harara, and Hazem Qoureqa of the Al Quds Brigades, the military arm of Islamic Jihad, that organisation said in a statement.
