Qassam Brigades says fighters attacked tank, killing 2 soldiers

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Hamas' al-Qassam Brigades announced Monday that its fighters had killed two Israeli soldiers near Gaza City.

The Brigades said in a statement that militants had targeted an Israeli tank with a missile, killing two soldiers in the village of Juhr al-Dik.

The announcement came on a day of relative calm in the Gaza Strip, the 21st day of fighting.

Hamas' militant wing earlier in the day said it had clashed with Israeli soldiers in Jabaliya in northern Gaza, firing six mortars at troops.

They militants also fired at soldiers with small arms weaponry.

Two Palestinians were killed in the same area as Israeli artillery shelling targeted houses.

An Israeli army spokeswoman was not familiar with the shelling attacks, but the military said in a statement that soldiers around the Strip had been targeted by mortars.

According to official Israeli military figures, 43 soldiers have been killed during the ground invasion of Gaza that started July 17. Three civilians have also been killed by rocket attacks.

Palestinian militant groups have claimed to have killed scores of soldiers since they invaded the Strip, and say Israel has yet to announce the deaths of many of them.

Gaza factions said in a joint statement earlier that militants would continue fighting until the demands of the Palestinian people were met.

"The resistance will continue defending Palestinians against the Israeli war despite the pressures and conspiracies that intend to diminish Palestinian self-determination," Popular Resistance Committees leader Ayman al-Shashniya said in a statement.

Some 1,045 Palestinians have been killed since the beginning of Israel's assault on Gaza, which has also left over 6,200 injured.
