The Gaza health ministry said an Israeli bombing of a tunnel near the Egyptian border killed two Palestinians today.

The Gaza health ministry spokesman said in a statement the two men were “Martyred and five other people were wounded as a result of being targeted by an Israeli warplane along the Palestinian Egyptian borders.”

The bodies were brought to a Rafah hospital. The Israeli military denied any involvement.

A few hours earlier, the Israeli military said it had intercepted several rockets fired from the Egyptian Sinai peninsula at the southern Israeli town of Eilat.
