Palestinian gunmen fired two Qassam rockets from Gaza on Tuesday. One rocket landed near a town in Shaar HaNegev Regional Council, and the other fell in Eshkol Regional Council. No injuries or damage were reported.

 

The fire on the Negev was renewed two hours after the Air Force (IAF) killed two terrorists responsible for firing mortar shells at Israel from an area east of Rafah. Four other gunmen were injured in the strike.

 

The Israel Defense Forces reported that IAF jets opened fire at the mortar launching cell and identified a hit. News agencies reported that the Palestinians were hurt in an area used by gunmen to fire mortars at Israel.

 

Sources in Gaza reported that the Palestinians killed were two brothers, aged 15 and 17, from the village of Shuka near Rafah, and that three of the injured were youths.

 

"The Palestinians have the right to retaliate this new Zionist crime," a spokesman for one of the Palestinian organizations said, just hours after several mortar shells landed near the Kerem Shalom border crossing in southern Gaza. No injuries or damage were reported in the attack.
