Israeli army kills two militants in Gaza border shelling: Medics

Two Palestinians killed by Israeli tank fire in Gaza

To counter that threat, the Israeli military said it has mobilized private drone-racers as army reservists, who then try to ram into the kites with the remote-controlled aircraft.

Just hours before this announcement, the IDF announced that it had deactivated an explosive wired to a border fence.

Israeli Defense Forces statements have claims that the force found a drone last week in the Northern Negev desert created to harm border patrols.

The bombing was a response to an explosive device placed on Saturday near the border fence between Gaza and Israel, according to the army.

Islamic Jihad operates with a measure of independence from Hamas, the Islamist group that has controlled Gaza since 2007 and fought three wars against Israel. "IDF troops arrived at the scene and fired towards the suspects, who fled back into the Gaza Strip", an IDF spokesman tweeted at around noon on Saturday.

The men, aged 25 and 28, were killed near the city of Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip, an official from the Health Ministry said, as cited by Arabic language media and AFP. No injuries were reported in the incident.

The military also said the air strike was payback for "continued attempts to sabotage security infrastructure, during the riots constantly led by the Hamas terror organization".

Tuesday's Gaza flotilla will coincide with the 8th anniversary of an Israeli attack on the Turkish "Mavi Marmara" flotilla, in which nine Turkish activists were killed when the Israeli navy attacked the vessel in worldwide waters.

Dozens of burning kites were flown from Gaza across the border over the weekend, sparking several fires in Israeli fields, Hadashot TV news reported Saturday night.

Israel says it is defending its border as well as its communities nearby.

The violent demonstrations were meant to end on May 15, but Hamas leaders have said they want them to continue.

He called on the United Nations and other global bodies to protect the boat leaving from the enclave run by Islamist movement Hamas.
