Two Hamas fighters killed in Gaza explosion

July 25, 2009 9:11 A.M. (Updated: July 26, 2009 11:39 A.M.)
Gaza – Ma’an – Two members of Hamas’ military wing were killed late on Friday night during a “Jihad mission” east of Al-Bureij Refugee Camp in the central Gaza Strip, a Hamas statement said.

The statement identified the victims as members of the Al-Qassam Brigades Osama Kamal Nabaheen and Bakr Jamal Nabaheen from Al-Bureij Camp.

Hamas announced deathd of the two activists over loudspeakers calling on Gaza residents to participate in their funeral processions on Saturday.

Separately, the military wing of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), the Abu Ali Mustafa Brigades, claimed responsibility on Friday evening for opening fire at Israeli troops east of Beit Hanoun in the northern Gaza Strip while the soldiers attempted to step out of their military jeep.

Pledging to continue with “resistance” as long as occupation continues, the military group asserted in a statement that one soldier was hit.

Ma'an could not independently confirm these claims.
