Security officials said that the two were attacked as they were preparing to launch a rocket into Israel.

Minutes after the bombing, Palestinians opened fire at Israeli workers along the border of the Gaza Strip. A car passing nearby was hit and the driver was treated at the scene for light wounds.

The attack on Tuesday broke a two-month long lull in violence along the Gaza border.

In June, four rockets were fired into Israel, and a total of 47 terrorist attacks were perpetrated by Palestinians in Gaza, the West Bank and Jerusalem – compared to 72 in May.
