Two Palestinian terrorists were reportedly killed on Monday morning in the northern Gaza Strip as the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) responded to the latest Palestinian firing.
Israeli soldiers conducting routine operations along the Gaza border fence came under mortar fire in the morning hours, prompting return fire, an IDF spokesperson said.
The Israel Air Force also targeted two rocket-launching squads, from Hamas and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), in northern Gaza over the course of the morning.
Citing local Palestinian officials, Reuters reported that two Palestinian terrorists were killed in Gaza. Hamas claimed one of the dead as its own, and the other was not immediately identified. Several other Palestinians were wounded in the strikes as well, Palestinian sources told news agencies.
