By Xinhua

Gaza : Israeli forces fired missiles in northern Gaza Strip early Saturday, killing two Hamas militants and wounding three others, medical sources said.

Mu’awia Hassanein, director of ambulance and emergency in the Palestinian health ministry, said Ihab al-Bana, 30, and Ali Jum’a, 25, were dead when they were rushed to the hospital, adding that three other militants were moderately hurt.

According to residents, more than 40 Israeli tanks and armored vehicles rolled into the eastern territories of Jabaliya refugee camp in northern Gaza Strip where the Israeli army and the Palestinian fighters exchanged fire before the Israeli drones dropped bombs on the gunmen groups.

Meanwhile, a Hamas fighter, identified as 21-year-old Shadi Qtifan, has died due to wounds he sustained in an air strike two days ago.

On Jan. 15, the Israeli army carried out a sudden incursion in eastern Gaza city and killed 19 Palestinians, including 13 Hamas militants. Hamas resumed rocket attacks on Israeli territories following the offensive and a new round of action and reaction started, leaving more than 37 Palestinians dead so far.
