IDF forces kill two militants in Gaza Strip — Palestinian Report

Turkey plotting against Israel over Jerusalem might push Erdogan closer to Assad

IDF forces kill two militants in Gaza Strip — Palestinian Report

In a statement released shortly afterward, however, the Israeli army denied any involvement in the incident.

No one should have been surprised that Mr. Trump delivered on the promise made by several presidents.

The spokesman for the Hamas-run Health Ministry in Gaza confirmed the arrivals of two bodies at the hospital but did not confirm their identities.

Earlier on Wednesday, Israel carried out retaliatory strikes on a Hamas military compound in Gaza in response to rocket fire late Tuesday.

The bombardment came after a rocket fired toward Israel's southern coastal city of Ashkelon was intercepted by the anti-missile Iron Dome defense system.

No one was injured and no damage was caused as a result of the fire and interception. And it is classic retribution that an ally of the Turkish strongman has placed a reward of $800,000 on the heads of two U.S. diplomats who dared condemn the Erdogan retaliation against supposed organizers of a 2016 coup attempt.

Tension has mounted in the Palestinian territories since last week's controversial decision by U.S. President Donald Trump to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Two weeks ago, the group fired 12 projectiles aimed at an IDF post and a cement factory on the northeastern edge of the Gaza Strip where construction crews are working on Israel's new underground barrier with the Strip.
