Israeli troops kill two Palestinian fighters in Gaza Strip
Israeli troops killed early Saturday two Palestinians near “Nahal Oz” crossing East of Gaza City, Palestinian security sources reported.
According to Israeli sources, the two men approached about 100 meters of the border fence which separates Gaza Strip from the nearby Israeli farming village of Nahal Oz.
In a statement faxed to The Associated Press in Gaza, the military wing of Hamas together with a smaller armed group said they sent the two fighters to the area and that they battled with soldiers before being shot dead. (Albawaba.com)
