The Israelis have claimed responsibility for the attack and the target was Mohammed Nimnim, a senior figure in a Salafist group called the Army of Islam. The same people that kidnapped British journalist Alan Johnston.

The Israel Defense Forces won't confirm whether it was an airstrike or not, but they claim Nimnim had cross-border connections with extremists operating in the Sinai Peninsula and may have had a hand in recent attacks launched from there.
