Israel killed two Hamas members in the Gaza Strip. An air force strike Tuesday in the Jabaliya refugee camp killed Hassan Al-Madhoun, whom Israel has said was responsible for two deadly bombings, and Hamas operative Fawzi Abu Al-Kara, Ha’aretz reported. The attack on the men’s car also injured nine bystanders.

Israel approved a plan for European inspectors to man the Gaza-Rafah border. The plan, approved by Israel’s security cabinet on Tuesday, is a breakthrough in slow-moving negotiations over who controls the border now that Israel has left the Gaza Strip. The decision means that Vice Prime Minister Shimon Peres may now approach the European Union on the matter.
