GAZA CITY (Ma’an) – Two Palestinians were killed and a third was injured Tuesday as Israeli warplanes fired a missile at the central Gaza Strip, Palestinian medical officials said.
Two bodies and an injured man were evacuated from the village of Al-Musaddar in central Gaza to the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Hospital.
Medics identified the victims as Muhammad Said Abu Jazar and Kamal Abu Muammar and said the injured man was in serious condition.
Israeli media said the air force targeted a group of operatives attempting to fire a projectile.
No Palestinian faction has claimed responsibility for any attempt to launch projectiles.
An Israeli army spokeswoman said the military had no immediate comment on the reports.
