GAZA: At least two Islamic Jihad militants were killed and two injured Saturday in an explosion at a training compound of the militant group in south Gaza, an official said.
The Islamic Jihad said in an emailed press statement that two of its militants were killed and two others wounded during training in a military facility near the southern Gaza Strip town of Khan Younis.
Earlier overnight, unknown militants fired a homemade rocket from the Gaza Strip into Israel.
Medical sources also said that Israeli soldiers stationed near the borders between Gaza Strip and Israel opened fire at Palestinian farmers east of the central Gaza Strip town of Deir el-Ballah and wounded one of them.
Israel and the Gaza Strip militants had reached a ceasefire agreement brokered by Egypt in 2012 at the end of an eight-day Israeli aerial operation.
