Two Palestinians Killed in Israeli Missile Strike


Palestinian and Israeli officials say two Palestinian militants have been killed in an Israeli missile attack in the Gaza Strip.

An Israeli army spokesman says troops saw members of the militant group Al Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades firing a rocket toward Israel Saturday. He said the militants were struck by an Israeli missile after leaving the launch site in a car.

The strike came a day after Israeli aircraft fired missiles into a car in southern Gaza, killing six people, including a senior Palestinian militant and his child.

Israel says it has the right to strike at militants it says are planning attacks on the Jewish state.

In southern Gaza, Palestinian police say two people were killed today near Rafah in the collapse of a tunnel under the Gaza-Egypt border.

Some information for this report was provided by AP and Reuters.
