Israel kills three Islamic Jihad fighters in Gaza Strip

Israeli tanks shell Gaza Strip Islamic Jihad group says two militants killed

Samir al-Amour 25, and Abdul Kareem al-Naqa 28, were killed by Israeli artillery fire in the Southern Gaza Strip city of Rafah, spokesperson for health ministry in Gaza, Ashraf al-Qedra, said in a statement.

Hostilities over the Gaza frontier have soared since Palestinians began mass-demonstrations on March 30, which Israel deems cover for attempts to breach the border fence.

The infiltration came just hours after Palestinians threw an explosive device at IDF soldiers during a protest on the border.

The Islamic Jihad post that was targeted in the tank strike overlooked the portion of the fence where the IED had been planted.

"The Hamas terror organization is exclusively responsible for what is happening in and out of the Gaza Strip, and it will bear the consequences for the terrorist acts being carried out from Gaza against the citizens and sovereignty of Israel", it added.

The targeting of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad position likely indicates that the army had specific intelligence that the Iran-backed group was behind the attempted IED attack.

Karius accepts blame for Liverpool's Champions League heartbreak

On Saturday, militants briefly infiltrated Israel and set a fire.

The barrier, which consists of fortified breakwater topped with barbed wire, is being constructed a few kilometres north of Gaza and is due to be completed by the end of the year.

The Palestinian Journalist Syndicate (PCJ) condemned the bill in a statement, saying that it was "racist" and "severely attacks the profession of the press and legitimizes the criminal practices committed by the Israeli occupation army against the Palestinian people".

"We'll deal with the kites, too", security cabinet minister Naftali Bennett told Israel Radio, when asked about the military's actions around Gaza.

The military on Saturday announced the death of a soldier who was injured during a raid in the occupied West Bank on Thursday when Palestinians reportedly dropped a stone slab on his head from a building. Hundreds attended his funeral in Jerusalem on Sunday.
