Two Palestinians were killed and five wounded overnight, the Islamist movement Hamas said on Thursday in Gaza, following a spike in tensions near the Egypt-Israel border.

The Gaza health ministry blamed an Israeli air strike. The incident comes after several rockets were fired on Wednesday evening from Egypt’s Sinai, which borders the Gaza Strip, at the Israeli Red Sea resort of Eilat.

The Israeli military however had not confirmed by Thursday that it had carried out retaliatory strikes.
