Israeli strike kills 2, wounds 2 in northern Gaza Strip

Israeli aircraft and tanks struck a group of Palestinians suspected to be planting a bomb along the Israel-Gaza border. Two were reported killed and two injured. Hamas said all victims were civilians and Israel will be held responsible, raising the prospect of cross border escalation.  Ihab Ghussein, spokesman for the Interior Ministry said his ministry “and all its security forces are ready to deal with any new escalation.” No armed group has recognized these militants as members.

An Israeli military official said that during the IDF strike, “an explosion was identified, originating from the explosive device the terrorists attempted to plant.”
