GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- An Israeli airstrike on the Gaza Strip injured 11 people on Sunday, a Gaza medical official said.

Gaza Health Ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qidra told Ma'an the airstrike targeted a motorcycle traveling in a busy neighborhood of Rafah. Two of the wounded were in a critical condition and one required both legs to be amputated.

Five children were among the wounded, al-Qidra added.

Israel's army said it had targeted Global Jihad operative Talaat Halil Muhammad Jarbi, 23, and Abdullah Muhmmad Hassan Maqawai, 24, a statement said.

Jarbi was reportedly involved in an attack in June on the Israel-Egypt border, which led to the deaths of one construction worker and two militants, it added.
