The Ezzeddin al-Qassam Brigades, Hamas's armed wing, has identified the two slain Palestinians as Abdul-Hafith Silawi and Ahmed Murjan, both 23, from the Jabalia refugee camp.
Meanwhile, the Israeli occupation army said that it shelled a Hamas post in response to firing from the Palestinian enclave that targeted Israeli troops.

The military said the tank responded to shots fired at soldiers from the post.
"The resistance can not allow the occupation to impose a policy of bombing sites and targeting fighters without paying the price", a Hamas statement said.
"Our Resistance will never accept that Israel hits our positions and our men with impunity", said Fawzi Barhoum, a Hamas leader.
