Israeli strike kills two Hamas militants in Gaza

Israeli strike kills two Hamas militants in Gaza

The clash took place just before midday on Tuesday amid Egyptian efforts to broker a cease-fire between Israel and the Palestinian militant Hamas group, which controls the coastal strip.

"In response to terrorists shooting at IDF forces in the northern Gaza Strip, an IDF tank attacked the position belonging to the Hamas terror group where the attack originated", the army said.

Al-Qassam said that the training including the use of sniper fire, and explosives, and the fighters were practicing techniques when the Israeli army fired a shell at them, killing the two fighters.

The deaths of two of its fighters could trigger an escalation between Hamas and Israel.

Ran Goldstein, the head of the Israel-based Physicians for Human Rights, told the state-run Israeli Broadcasting Corporation that Hamas had told him that "the video sent by the family of Avraham Mengistu to their son about two years ago has been passed on".

The military released footage that it said was of the incident.

United Nations and Egyptian-led efforts are under way to mediate a long-term truce between Israel and Hamas that would end a four-month surge of violence along the Israel-Gaza border.

"The IDF is prepared to target any aggression against Israel and holds Hamas responsible for everything happening in and from the Gaza Strip", the spokesperson said.

The sides have been engaged in months of border violence.

Israeli soldiers attacked with force on Monday Palestinian civilians who were protesting Israel's destruction of water holes and pipes that were supplying their villages in the northern Jordan Valley with badly needed water, according to participants in the protest.
