Two Palestinian gunmen died on Saturday morning in a training accident in the Gaza Strip.

The two, who were Islamic Jihad fighters, were killed west of Khan Younis, in the southern Gaza Strip.

At least two more members of the terror group were injured, Army Radio reported.

On Friday, Palestinian militants in Gaza fired a rocket which struck southern Israel, without causing casualties or damage, following a weeks-long lull.

An army spokeswoman told AFP it struck open ground in the Shaar Hanegev area.

Also on Friday, shots were fired at Israeli soldiers operating near the Gaza border fence, military spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Peter Lerner said.

“Forces fired in response. No injuries reported,” Lerner wrote on Twitter.

Over 100 projectiles fired by militants in the Gaza Strip, ruled by the Islamist movement Hamas, have crashed into Israel since the start of 2014, according to military data.

But the Israel-Gaza border region has been largely quiet this month, with the last rocket fire on the Jewish state dating back to May 1.
