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.

'A routine army patrol' -- outside of Israeli territory...or will the Zionists now claim that Gaza is in Israel after all?

1- This "routine army patrol outside of Israeli territory" was probably just as innocent as the one that abducted Gilad Shalit.
2- If it had been successful, it would have held abductees for years, like Gilad Shalit, which despite Geneva Convention rules, was/would NOT be allowed even one Red Cross visit. And,
3- If Gaza would accept peace, through negotiation, then such patrols might be treated differently !!!
