REUTERS – Israeli tank shelling killed two members of the Palestinian militant group Islamic Jihad and wounded a third in the Gaza Strip today (May 27), medical officials said, after weeks of border protests that have drawn lethal army fire.

Israel’s military confirmed that it targeted an observation post, calling the attack retaliation for a bomb that had been placed next to the border fence overnight. The bomb was detonated by army engineers, causing no casualties, the military said on Twitter.

Hostilities over the Gaza frontier have soared since Palestinians began mass-demonstrations on March 30, which Israel deems cover for attempts to breach the border fence. At least 113 Palestinians have been killed and thousands hurt by army gunfire in the protests, drawing foreign censure.
