  • Two Palestinians killed by Israeli tank fire in Gaza

Video issued on the military's Twitter feed showed the bomb being detonated safely.

"This is the only barrier of its kind in the world, which will effectively block the possibility of infiltrating into Israel by sea", Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said in a statement on Sunday.

The Gazan health ministry identified those killed as Hussein al-Amour, 25, and Abdul Haleem al-Naqa, 28.

Israeli aircraft struck two Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip on Saturday night, but there were no immediate reports of casualties, Palestinian security sources in the coastal territory said.

"We will not give up our duty to the blood of the martyrs shed by the occupation, and we know how to respond to this risky escalation", Islamic Jihad said in a statement. Amnesty International has called the situation in Gaza "another horrific example of the Israeli military using excessive force and live ammunition in a totally deplorable way".

No injuries were reported either from local sources or the IDF.

Israel already maintains a naval blockade on the Gaza Strip.

Court rules that Donald Trump can not block people on Twitter
US President Donald Trump can not block users on his Twitter feed, a NY federal judge has ruled . "The answer to both questions is no".

According to Gaza medical officials, more than 115 Palestinians have so far lost their lives by Israeli fire since the border rallies began in late March.

Over a hundred Palestinians have been killed in the rolling protests and clashes, mostly from Israeli gunfire and thousands more injured.

"The IDF and the security forces are working around the clock to defend the State of Israel, to protect the citizens of Israel and to defend the borders of Israel", the prime minister concluded.

The death of the baby inflamed Palestinian passions and led to a deluge of condemnation against Israel for its heavy-handed response to the border protests.

Israel has blunted the military capabilities of Hamas with a series of counter-measures: the Iron Dome air defense system against short-range rockets and a system for detecting and destroying cross-border guerrilla tunnels.

An attack targeting an observation post on Sunday killed at least three people, including two fighters from the Islamic Jihad movement.
