Airstrikes on north Gaza kill at least 2

GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- Israeli airstrikes on the northern Gaza Strip killed at least two Palestinians on Monday morning, Gaza officials said.

They said militants fired mortar bombs at Israeli troops spotted inside Gaza's boundary fence, drawing airstrikes against a Hamas training camp and other targets.

The first strike on Jabalia injured four people, and 26-year-old Abdul-Rahman Darwish Abu Jalalah later died of his wounds, health ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qidra said. Hamas' military wing claimed him as a fighter.

Later, warplanes targeted the nearby town of Beit Hanoun, killing 26-year-old Yasser Juma Tarabin and wounding another. Islamic Jihad said Tarabin was a fighter affiliated to their brigades.

Israel's army said the first strike "targeted a rocket launching squad ... in response to mortar shell fire at a routine (army) patrol in the area."

A military spokeswoman confirmed a second strike.
