At least 2 Palestinians Killed In Clashes With IDF

Two Palestinians were killed in clashes near the border fence around the Gaza Strip on Friday, Palestinian media reported.

According to the reports, the two were injured from Israeli artillery near Kissufim, east of Khan Younis. It was also reported that heavy clashes and a powerful explosion took place in the area, and that IDF helicopters were circling the area.

"An Israeli army force raided 500 metres (yards) into Palestinian territory, and was confronted by our gunmen," said Abu Obeida, spokesman for the Hamas armed wing. "This was our work, but was carried out for defense."

Meanwhile, the unknown "Taliban Falasteen" organization also claimed responsibility for the incident. The organization is believed to be affiliated with al-Qaeda. The al-Quds Brigades, Islamic Jihad's military wing, also claimed responsibility for the clashes.
