Israel kills 2 rocketeers

Israel’s air force killed two Palestinians who fired a rocket across the Gaza Strip border.

A Palestinian squad was spotted launching a rocket from northern Gaza on Wednesday, drawing an Israeli airstrike. The affiliation of the two terrorists killed was not immediately clear.

Israel is under pressure to crack down on Gaza, which has seen a surge of rocket salvoes in recent days. Wary of launching a large-scale invasion, Israel is preparing to cut supplies of power and fuel to Palestinians in the territory as a punitive but nonviolent response.
