Israel strikes Hamas over kite attacks

Israel's army said troops shot dead two Palestinians while they were crossing the fence from the besieged Gaza Strip to Israel on Sunday afternoon.

Palestinians sent several stunt kites with incendiary bombs over the border towards Israel Friday.

"An attempt to infiltrate Israel and sabotage security infrastructure was thwarted", the IDF stated.

The Israeli military has denied involvement. Reports said it could have been a "work accident" caused during terrorist activity. Israel accuses Hamas, which is sworn to Israel's destruction, of trying to carry out attacks under the guise of the mass protests.

Hamas' military wing however blamed Israel in a statement and said a "heinous crime has been committed against our fighters".

The incident occurred during a "complex security and intelligence operation", Qassam said in a statement, calling it "serious and large security incident" and blaming the "Zionist enemy".

The leadership of the terrorist organization Hamas in the Gaza strip through various channels gave Israel a proposal to engage in negotiations on long-term pacification ("udna") and the exchange of bodies and prisoners.




The exact circumstances of the blast were unclear and Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip, provided no further details.

The IDF has described the protests as "a violent riot", saying participants have thrown Molotov cocktails and rocks at soldiers, opened fire on them, set tires on fire to provide cover for attacks and attempted to cross the border into Israel.

Earlier, a group of Palestinians breached the border fence with Israel and briefly entered its territory.

"The strike was in response to an incident that took place in Israel", said the Israeli spokeswoman.

Israeli media have in recent days reported significant damage to farms due to kite-flown Molotov cocktails, though the devices face hard odds in making it across the fence while staying alight.

According to Hamas health ministry figures that are not independently confirmed, 48 Palestinians have been killed since protests began on March 30 and hundreds of others have been wounded.
