2 Palestinians killed in Israeli airstrike in northern Gaza Strip
Two Palestinians were killed in an Israeli airstrike targeting a motorcycle in the northern Gaza Strip on Tuesday afternoon.
Local and medical sources confirmed that two Palestinians were killed in the airstrike in the Umm al-Nasr village in the Beit Lahiya district of northern Gaza.
Sources from the Islamic Jihad movement identified the two as Hussein Ghazi Hussein Nasrallah and Mustafa al-Sultan, members of the engineering unit of the al-Quds Brigades, the military wing of the movement.
Sources added that their bodies were taken to the Indonesian Hospital in Jabaliya.
An Israeli army spokesperson confirmed to Ma’an that “an operation” had been carried out in the northern Gaza Strip.
On Saturday, two members of Hamas’ military wing had been killed in an airstrike, while two Palestinian civilians had been killed by Israeli forces on Friday during clashes along the border.
Since US President Donald Trump’s announcement last week recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, tensions have risen across the occupied West Bank, East Jerusalem, and Gaza, with clashes, injuries, and arrests every single day.
