GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Two Palestinians were killed during an Israeli airstrike, targeting a group of youths, east of Jabaliya town in the northern besieged Gaza Strip, on Sunday.

According to the Ministry of Health in Gaza, the two Palestinians killed were identified as Ayman Nafed Rabie Najjar, 24, and Muhannad Majed Jamal Hamude, 24.

The ministry added that immediately after the targeted Israeli airstrike was carried out, the two Palestinians were transferred to the Indonesian Hospital in southern Gaza, where medical doctors declared the two dead.

The incident took place after a tense weekend on the border during which three Palestinians were killed and others wounded during the 18th Friday of "The Great March of Return" after clashes with Israeli forces in the southern Gaza Strip.

Violent clashes also broke out over the weekend in the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, in which Israeli forces stormed the compound and fired sound bombs in the area, causing injuries to the guards and worshipers.
