Israeli bombing kills two Palestinians in Gaza

PALESTINE: The Gaza Health Ministry said an Israeli bombing of a tunnel near the Egyptian border killed two Palestinians on Thursday, but the military denied any involvement. The Gaza Health ministry spokesman said in a statement the two men were “martyred and five other people were wounded as a result of being targeted by an Israeli warplane along the Palestinian Egyptian borders.” An Israeli military spokeswoman said she had no knowledge of the attack, which happened before dawn. A few hours earlier, the Israeli military said it had intercepted several rockets fired from the Egyptian Sinai peninsula at the southern Israeli town of Eilat. One rocket landed in an open area causing no casualties or damage, police said. There was no immediate claim of responsibility from any group for firing the rockets.
