'4 Palestinians killed' in Israeli airstrike on Gaza's Bureij camp

July 6, 2014 11:31 P.M. (Updated: July 7, 2014 9:34 A.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Four Palestinians were killed in an Israeli airstrike on the central Gaza Strip late Sunday, a Ma'an reporter said.

At least two of them were members of the al-Quds Brigades, the military wing of the Islamic Jihad movement. They were killed as Israeli warplanes struck al-Bureij refugee camp.

Those two were identified as Mazen al-Hadba and Marwan Salim.

Further details were not immediately available.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said the air force "managed to prevent a rocket attack" from the central Gaza Strip.

"A hit was confirmed," the spokeswoman said.

She said that 25 rockets fired from Gaza hit Israel on Sunday.

Israel has bombed the besieged enclave on a near-nightly basis amid heavy tension following the kidnapping and killing of three teenagers in the West Bank.
