Two Hamas gunmen killed in clashes with IDF troops in Gaza

Two Hamas gunmen were killed before dawn on Tuesday in clashes with IDF troops along the Israel-Gaza border, Hamas security and hospital officials said. The army said two suspicious figures approached an Israeli force conducting a routine operation in southern Gaza against rocket launching cells who attack southern Israel. Troops opened fire, and identified a hit, the military said. The clash took place in an area rocket squads frequently use to strike two Gaza-Israel crossings, Kerem Shalom and Sufa.
