GAZA, July 6 (Xinhua) -- Two Palestinians were killed and one other moderately injured on Sunday as the Israeli war jets launched air raids targeting central Gaza Strip, medical sources and witnesses said.
Palestinian health ministry spokesman said the two men were killed right on spot in the strike in the central Gaza Strip refugee camp of al-Maghazi.
The two are believed to be militants who were attempting to fire rockets into Israel.
Earlier in the day, Israeli drones carried out two raids in Gaza targeting Palestinian militants who were trying to launch rocket attacks against the neighboring Israel.
Tensions have been running ever high after Israel accused Hamas of kidnapping and killing three Israeli teenagers who went missing on June 12 in the West Bank. The three teens were found dead near Hebron last Monday.
According to the Israeli army, more than 100 projectiles have been fired from Gaza since the eruption of the recent round of violence. So far, three Palestinians were killed, while 25 others wounded.
