Israeli airstrikes kill two on third day of protests

In Gaza, Israeli airstrikes killed two Hamas gunmen in response to rocket fire.

Ramallah:Over two dozen Palestinians have been injured in Israeli artillery and air strikes against the besieged Gaza Strip, amid escalating tensions in the occupied territories in the wake of the United States president's recognition of Jerusalem al-Quds as the Israeli capital.

It said that their bodies were recovered only several hours after the pre-dawn strike on a base of Hamas's military wing in Nusseirat in the central Gaza Strip.

Israeli police on Saturday said that one of two rockets fired from the Gaza strip on Friday was found in the courtyard of a vacant kindergarten in southern Israel. He said forces had detected the tunnel months ago and continued to monitor construction efforts by Hamas militants before demolishing it. Two Palestinian protesters were killed in the clashes. Two launches were identified but the rockets fell inside Gaza. They followed three rocket attacks during Friday's Palestinian "day of rage" over Trump's decision.

The IDF said the tunnel did not yet have an exit inside Israel, so it did not yet represent a threat to nearby communities, however Hamas could have made the tunnel ready for a terrorist attack within a relatively short period.

Early Saturday more Israeli air strikes hit Gaza, but no casualties were reported yet.

The Israeli military said some 600 Palestinians were throwing firebombs and rolling burning tires toward Israeli forces.
