  • Two dead in Gaza blast Israeli military denies it carried out an attack

Palestinian health ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra had informed AFP earlier today that two men were killed "in Beit Lahia in northern Gaza after an Israeli strike targeted a motorcycle".

A rocket was launched toward Israel from the northern Gaza Strip on Tuesday and exploded on the Palestinian side of the fence.

Rocket sirens sounded in southern Israeli communities near the border with the Gaza Strip and residents in the southern Israeli cities of Ashkelon and Ashdod reported hearing explosions.

The latest wave of rocket fire followed US President Donald Trump's statement on Wednesday recognising Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.


Two Palestinians terrorists were killed in the Gaza Strip on Tuesday, apparently the result of a terrorism-related explosion.

Monday's strikes came a day after Israel said it destroyed a tunnel built by Hamas that ran several hundred meters (yards) into Israeli territory.

On Thursday, Israel also used air strikes and tank fire into Gaza after what a military statement described as "a projectile" was sacked into southern Israel. Sunday had been the deadline for the handover a decade after Hamas seized power in the Palestinian enclave in a near civil war with Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmud Abbas's Fatah, based in the occupied West Bank.

The Israeli military said the targets were "two terror posts", without identifying them.
