Israel air strike kills 2 in Gaza

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli warplanes fired missiles at the Jabaliya refugee camp in northern Gaza on Sunday morning, killing two Palestinian fighters and injuring three others.

Medics at the Kamal Udwan Hospital identified one of those killed as Sabri Hashim Asaliyya, a recently-married nurse. Asaliyya, 22, and Radwan Namrouti, 26, were both later identified by Islamic Jihad's military wing as fighters.

The Al-Quds Brigades confirmed that two of its fighters were killed in an attack on the northern Gaza Strip, a statement said, noting both were from the An-Nusseirat refugee camp in central Gaza.

Ma'an's reporter said Islamic Jihad's supporters announced the death of two fighters through loudspeakers on vehicles in Jabalia's streets.

According to medics, the group of men were hit by a missile fired from an Israeli reconnaissance plane on As-Sikka Street east of the camp.

In a statement, the Israeli military said it identified "a group of rocket launchers preparing to fire a rocket" in the northern Gaza Strip and fired at them.

A hit was confirmed, the statement added.

The attack came less than 24 hours after Palestinian factions offered a truce if Israel's military stopped bombarding the Gaza Strip.

The latest strike brought the death toll in the coastal enclave to at least 12, including civilians and children, over the last week. More than 50 have been injured.

Israel's army says it is responding to projectiles fired by militants in Gaza, which have injured one Israeli over the last week.
