Two Palestinian militants killed in Gaza strike

Two men on a motorcycle were reportedly killed in a drone strike carried out by the Israeli military in the Gaza Strip Tuesday, according to Palestinian media reports.

Eyewitnesses and paramedics said an Israeli missile hit a motorbike, killing two riders, which Israeli army spokesman has denied.

The incident comes amid ongoing protests in the occupied West Bank, occupied East Jerusalem and besieged Gaza over US President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. On October 30, Israel blew up an Islamic Jihad attack tunnel that stretched from Gaza under the border into Israel.

A senior security establishment official is quoted anonymously telling Walla News on Shabbos that "Hamas is playing a risky game as Israel views renewed rocket fire from Gaza a very serious".

On Sunday, Israel said it had destroyed a tunnel dug by Hamas into Israeli territory, apparently for use in an attack. A third rocket was intercepted by an Iron Dome system. Two were killed in clashes, while two others died in Israeli air strikes in response to rocket fire from Gaza.

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.

A rocket that was sacked from Gaza at around 11:30 PM on Monday night was intercepted by an Iron Dome battery over the city of Ashkelon.

Two weeks ago, the group fired 12 projectiles aimed at an IDF post and a cement factory on the northeastern edge of the Gaza Strip where construction crews are working on Israel's new underground barrier with the Strip. At least ten terrorists were injured, of which two were killed.
