The father of one of two Palestinians killed in a tunnel bombing mourns at a hospital
Two Palestinian civilians have been martyred and 5 others have been wounded in an airstrike that hit a tunnel in Gaza close to the Egyptian border. It was unclear who launched the assault on Thursday. A Palestinian official blamed Israel.

Ashraf al-Qedra, Gaza’s well being ministry spokesperson, mentioned in a press release the 2 males have been “martyred and 5 different folks have been wounded on account of being focused by an Israeli warplane alongside the Palestinian-Egyptian borders”.

In response to al-Qedra, the 2 males martyred have been recognized as Hossam al-Sufi, 24, and Mohammed al-Aqra, 38.

An Israeli army spokeswoman mentioned she was unaware of the assault, which occurred pre-dawn between the Gaza Strip and Rafah on the Egyptian aspect of the border.

The incident came about after at the least three rockets have been fired from the Sinai peninsula on Wednesday.

Gaza has been below a decade-long siege imposed by Israel following Hamas’ election victory and subsequent takeover of the enclave in 2007.

Since 2013, Egypt has largely shut off its border with Gaza, blocking practically 2,000 tunnels connecting Gaza with Rafah, stemming the move of much-needed items and sources.

Egypt lately eased some border restrictions with Gaza.
