Israel strike kills 2 Palestinians - Gaza Strip officials
The statement comes after the Israeli air force struck four locations in the Gaza Strip, a Palestinian territory controlled by Hamas on Friday.
An Israeli airstrike has killed two Palestinians, a Gaza Strip security officials said Saturday.

According to the latest data provided by the Palestinian Health Ministry, at least 25 people have been injured as a result of the airstrike. At the same time, The Jerusalem Post newspaper reported Friday that six children were among the injured.

At least two Palestinians were slain, with some 760 more injured on Friday during the so-called "day of rage" protests in Jerusalem, the West Bank. Skirmishes between the Israelis and Palestinians escalated after Israeli Air Force warplanes had targeted militants in response to rocket attacks, claimed by the al-Nasser Salah al-Deen Brigades, a Palestinian militant organization.

Just days earlier, US President Donald Trump made a highly controversial announcement to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the state of Israel.
