Israeli tank fire kills two Gazans as injured soldier dies

Israeli tank fire has martyred two Palestinians east of the city of Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip, taking to 113 the number of Gazans martyred in less than two months.

According to Press TV, the Palestinian Health Ministry said the fatalities were caused on Sunday, naming those martyred as Hussein al-Amour, 25, and Abdul Haleem al-Naqa, 28.

The ministry said the attack targeted an observation post belonging to the Palestinian resistance group, the Islamic Jihad. Zionist entity’s military alleged that the shelling was retaliation for an explosive device near Gaza’s fence.

Israeli warplanes on Saturday hit what the regime called targets belonging to the Hamas resistance movement, without any report of casualties.

The fatalities have been caused by the Israeli fire since March 30, when people in the besieged coastal territory began peaceful rallies near the fence demanding the right to return to their homeland.

The largest number of fatalities on a single day came on May 14, which coincided with the 70th anniversary of the illegal Zionist entity’s creation in 1948.

The Palestinians were peacefully commemorating the Nakba (Catastrophe) Day, while also protesting the US relocation of its embassy from Tel Aviv to the holy occupied city of al-Quds.
