An Israeli air strike on a Gaza base of Hamas’s military wing killed two people on Saturday, health officials of the territory’s Palestinian rulers said.
The strike on a base in Nusseirat in the central Gaza Strip, one of several in the early hours, came amid protests across the Palestinian territories against US President Donald Trump’s deeply controversial recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
The Hamas health ministry in Gaza named the men as Abdullah al-Atal, 28 and Mohammed al-Safdi, 30.
It said that their bodies were only recovered several hours after the pre-dawn strike on a base of Hamas’s military wing in Nusseirat in the central Gaza Strip.
The militants did not say if the dead men were its members. The strike followed three rocket attacks Friday night from Gaza into southern Israel, foreign media reported.
