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.

Israel should never listen to UN and never trust terrorists. Israel should keep striking until no Hamas left.

To Just #1: 'Israel should never listen to UN and never trust terrorists. Israel should keep striking until no Hamas left.' If it wasn't for the sheer savagery involved, I'd encourage Israel to do just that -- only it will continue until there's no Israel, left, not no Hamas. Hamas will always be there -- they've no place to go. Israel can't say the same. More and more Israelis are just leaving -- and the rest of the world's about to turn out the lights. So yeah: cheer 'em on.

We now know that Israeli Jews and uninspired Christian leaders are themselves the true Anti-Semites. Arabs have semetic DNA and are thus decended from New Testament Judean Hebrews who have always lived on that land. Israeli Jews are 90% Ashkenazi Jews from Eastern Europe without semetic DNA. Research proves them descended from Turks and Mongols, thus having no claim to Palestine at all. Their "chosen" status is a farce, and Palestinians along with minority Hebrew Jews are that people whom Jes
