|A top Salafist leader and two other militants were killed in overnight air strikes on Gaza, as Israel vowed on Sunday to 'act aggressively' against jihadists. In the first of two deadly strikes, which took place in the northern town of Jabaliya late on Saturday, the Israeli air force killed two Salafist militants in the second such raid targeting radical Islamists within a week. Several hours later, Israeli warplanes targeted two militants from the armed wing of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) in the southern city of Khan Yunis, killing one of them and critically injuring the second. Speaking to the Israeli cabinet on Sunday morning, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that jihadists were stepping up their attempts to harm Israelis and warned that it would not be tolerated.|
