GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip – A Gaza health official says two men have been killed by Israeli fire in the central Gaza Strip.
Ashraf al-Kidra says Israeli forces fired toward the men east of Deir al-Balah late Sunday. Their identities were unclear.
The Israeli military had no immediate comment.
Such incidents have been rare since Israel and Gaza's Hamas rulers wrapped up an eight-day battle last month. Israel launched the offensive to stop years of rocket fire at Israeli communities.
