Israeli strike kills two Hamas fighters in Gaza

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

Hamas is threatening to retaliate against Israel for the killing on Tuesday of two of its fighters by the Israeli Army, which said it was responding to the fighters' fire on its soldiers at the border.

In the country's defense Ministry explained that the barrier needs to protect Israelis from attacks by the Islamic group Hamas.

The IDF spokesman also posted online a video of the Hamas terrorists shooting at Israeli troops from the Gaza Strip outpost.

The "Great March of Return" protests sought the right of Palestinian refugees and their descendants, who according to the United Nations make up around two-thirds of Gaza's population, to return to their homeland inside what is now Israel.

"The resistance can not allow the occupation to impose a policy of bombing sites and targeting fighters without paying the price", it said in a statement.

The Gaza Health Ministry confirmed the two deaths.

The military released footage that it said was of the incident.

Israel has lost tracts of farmland and forest to fires started by kites and helium balloons laden with incendiary material which have caused fires in Israeli forests and farmlands and flown over the border by Palestinians in Gaza.

Palestinian sources explained that Israeli Occupation Authorities (IOA) agreed on some of the issues negotiated, most notably not to object to the internal reconciliation process between Hamas and Fatah, to facilitate the travel of deputies and leaders of the two movements through the crossings, and to begin steps on the ground to open the closed Gaza crossings. No Israeli soldiers were injured in the Hamas attack.

Al-Aydi was one of four minors who died of gunshot wounds between July 27 and August 5 after Israeli forces shot them during protests on the the Gaza border.
