JERUSALEM, Oct. 31 (UPI) -- Israeli aircraft, retaliating after the firing of projectiles into Israel, struck a rocket-launching cell in Gaza, killing two cell members, officials said.

Palestinian sources in the Gaza Strip confirmed the strike east of Khan Yunis and said two members of the al-Ahrar movement's military unit were killed, Ynetnews.com reported. The bodies were found Monday.

The Israeli military action came after three Kassam rockets fired from Gaza into southern Israel landed in the Eshkol Regional Council area late Sunday.

Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak said on Army Radio Monday Israel won't honor a cease-fire as long as rockets are fired from Gaza. He said the Israeli military isn't interested in returning to Gaza but will respond if Israelis are attacked, The Jerusalem Post reported.
