Israel killed two Palestinian security officials in the besieged Gaza Strip on Wednesday.
Officials with the Hamas group said the air strike on a vehicle after dark in the town of Rafah on Gaza's border with Egypt killed two officials in control of tunnels leading into Egyptian territory.
After initially saying three had been killed, Hamas later corrected the death toll to two and said the third man had been critically wounded.
The Israeli military confimed the attacks.
Hamas accused Israel of having assassinated security officers whose job it was to oversee tunnels used to bring goods to and from Gaza via Egypt.
Last week Israel also killed six Gazans.
