An Israeli airstrike wounded two Palestinians in the Gaza Strip near the Egyptian border on Saturday, officials said.
Israel's military said its air force targeted Palestinians in the town of Rafah attempting to launch a rocket from Gaza into Israel.
Gaza health official Adham Abu Salmia said two people were wounded in the strike.
The leader of the Islamic militant group Hamas, which controls Gaza, vowed on Friday to abduct more Israeli soldiers to pressure the Jewish state to release Palestinian prisoners.
Speaking at a conference in the capital of Qatar, Khaled Mashaal said that such kidnappings are the only way to secure the release of Palestinians held in Israeli jails. Mashaal has made similar statements before.
Last year, Hamas struck a deal with Israel to swap an Israeli soldier held by Hamas for more than 1,000 Palestinian prisoners, including many jailed for helping carry out bombings.
