Recent days have seen a spike in rockets attacks from Gaza, following President Donald Trump's announcement that the USA recognizes Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
Reports from Gaza's Hamas-controlled Health Ministry said Tuesday that two Palestinians were killed in what was described as an assassination by an Israeli military drone.

The destruction of the tunnel did not lead to any deaths, Manelis said, adding that even if there were he was "not sorry", and that Israel will continue to take all measures at its disposal to destroy any cross-border tunnels. A third rocket was shot down by Israel's Iron Dome anti-missile system. Palestinian security officials in the enclave said the strikes hit two Hamas posts.
"The enemy will pay the price for breaking the rules of engagement with the resistance in Gaza", Hamas' Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades said in a statement on Sunday.
After the interception of the second rocket, Israeli tank fire hit a "Hamas military position" in Gaza, army spokesman Jonathan Conricus said.
Four Gazans, including two Hamas militants, have died since the announcement last Wednesday.
