Gaza - Ma'an - Two members of the Al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas, were killed and a number of people were wounded in a series of attacks targeting Palestinian resistance fighters east of Al-Khaza'a in the southern Gaza Strip on Friday.

Medical sources said that Al-Qassam Brigades affiliates Mohammed Mustafa Najjar and Amin Najjar were killed in an Israeli air raid out by east of Al-Khaza'a. A number of other people were injured in the attack and were taken to Nasser Hospital in Khan Younis.

Two days ago Israeli forces stormed Al-Khaza'a and an Israeli soldier was killed during the incursion.

On Friday morning, Palestinian sources reported an Israeli incursion east of Al- Bureij camp in the central Gaza Strip during which bulldozers razed agricultural land in the region.

The sources told Ma'an that since dawn on Friday a number of clashes had occurred between Palestinian resistance factions and Israeli forces east of Al-Bureij camp. There are no reports of injuries.

Meanwhile the Al-Qassam Brigades claimed responsibility for targeting Israeli tanks penetrating east of Al-Bureij with a rocket propelled grenade (RPG).

The Al-Quds Brigades, the military wing of Islamic Jihad, claimed responsibility for launching an RPG at an Israeli tank east of Al-Bureij camp also on Friday morning.

They told Ma'an that this operation comes in the framework of responding to the continuing aggression against the Palestinian people.
