Israeli strike kills 2 Hamas militants in disputed area

Israeli strike kills 2 Hamas militants in disputed area

An IDF tank destroyed a Hamas watchtower after shots were fired at Israeli soldiers near the Gaza border. "In response, an IDF tank targeted the post from which the shots were fired". A 6-meter high fence and additional security measures will be installed on the barrier by the end of 2018, the ministry said in a statement.

The incident took place as Egypt was working to broker a cease-fire deal between Hamas and Israel.

According to Israel's Channel Two, following the incident, Hamas issued a statement saying, "There will be dire consequences, the occupation should not sleep quietly - the resistance can not allow the occupation to attack our positions without paying a price". The video then cuts to separate footage of a shell hitting the post and an explosion.

The cross-border incident came after a delegation of senior Hamas officials visited Gaza to discuss a ceasefire agreement with Israel proposed by the United Nations and Egypt.

On August 5th, the day before the report was published, 17-year-old Ahmad Jihad Ahmad al-Aydi from Gaza succumbed to wounds he had sustained on the first day of Great March of Return protests on March 30th.

Israeli soldiers attacked with force on Monday Palestinian civilians who were protesting Israel's destruction of water holes and pipes that were supplying their villages in the northern Jordan Valley with badly needed water, according to participants in the protest.

On Monday, Israel responded to the launching of flaming balloons from Gaza into southern Israel by launching an airstrike, injuring two Gazans.
