Two Palestinians have been killed in an Israeli air raid on the Gaza Strip shortly after Israeli soldiers attacked Palestinian protesters taking part in the weekly “Great March of Return” rallies, leaving two of them dead and at least 50 others injured.
Palestinian sources confirmed on Friday that Israeli aircraft had targeted a position belonging to the Palestinian resistance in the al-Maghazi refugee camp, located in the center of the Gaza Strip.
The attack reportedly killed two members of Hamas’ military wing, known as the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades. The airstrike also injured three other Gazans.
Israeli sources also reported that the Israeli military had shelled the Bureij refugee camp at the center of the Gaza Strip.
The attacks came shortly after two Israeli soldiers were wounded by alleged sniper fire on the Gazan border.
