Israeli bus that was attacked near Eilat, 18 August 2011 Israeli officials promised to respond after a bus and other vehicles were attacked near Eilat
The Israeli military has confirmed carrying out air strikes over the Gaza Strip following a deadly series of attacks in southern Israel.
At least six people were killed in the air strikes, Palestinian sources said.
Earlier, Israeli Defence Minister Ehud Barak said Israel would respond with "full force" after attacks on vehicles near Eilat that left seven dead.
Israeli officials said Gazan militants were responsible, though Gaza's Hamas government denied involvement.
Reuters news agency quoted the Popular Resistance Committees (PRC), a faction in Gaza that often operates separately from Hamas, as saying its head and four other members had died in the air strikes.
Palestinian sources, also quoted by Reuters, said two people had been killed in a house in Rafah after Israeli drones - often used for air strikes - were heard overhead.
The attacks earlier in the day near the southern Israeli city of Eilat began when gunmen opened fire on a bus.
Israeli officials said two other vehicles were then hit nearby - one by a rocket and one by an explosive device.
They said that the attacks left seven Israelis dead, and that a number of gunmen were killed in an ensuing firefight.
