  • Watch: Two Hamas Terrorists Dead as Israel Returns Fire from Gaza

The two were said to be members of Hamas.

An Israeli strike on Tuesday killed two militants of the Gaza Strip's ruling Hamas movement after shots were fired at soldiers, Gazan and Israeli officials said.

The statement added that an Israeli combat tank had responded by "targeting the position from which the shots were fired".

Since Israel's devastating 2014 military onslaught against the Hamas-run Gaza Strip, a shaky ceasefire has remained in effect between the two sides.

Following a meeting with other resistance factions, al-Masri told reporters that the Palestinian resistance would "not allow Israel to breach the terms of the truce". It then cuts to footage of a shell hitting the post and an explosion.

In Gaza, Hamas's military wing, the Qassam Brigades, issued a statement saying that it "mourns the two Mujahedeen" and that they had been "martyred in a Zionist bombardment". By the end of July, over 155 Palestinians had died by Israeli fire and thousands were injured, according to the Palestinian health ministry in Gaza.

In the past four months, there has been an upsurge in violence along the Gaza-Israel border. Sources said that Hamas is unwilling to enter into any negotiations or provide any information about the Israeli soldiers detained, agreeing only to a prisoner exchange in return for the freeing of prisoners rearrested after the Gilad Shalit deal in 2011.

The tension in Gaza has been high since the Palestinians launched massive anti-Israel rallies in March, known as "the Great March of Return", which demanded the lift of the blockade Israel has imposed on Gaza since 2007.
