Two Palestinians were killed in an Israeli airstrike on Friday in the Gaza Strip.

Osama Hasan, 29, and Mohamed al-Faseih, 24, were both killed when an Israeli aircraft fired on a civilian vehicle in Gaza City's Al-Shatai refugee camp.

"The two men were torn apart in the attack," Health Ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qodrah told Anadolu Agency.

Israeli authorities did not comment on the strike.

Friday's attack came shortly after six Palestinians, including two children, were injured by Israeli artillery fire in Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip.

Since three Jewish settlers went missing from the West Bank two weeks ago, the self-proclaimed Jewish state has launched several attacks on the Gaza Strip while carrying out a massive detention campaign across the West Bank.

Israel accuses the Gaza-based Hamas movement of kidnapping the three settlers – claims the Palestinian resistance faction denies.

Since the trio was first reported missing in mid-June, at least eight Palestinians have been killed and hundreds arrested – including a number of Hamas-affiliated lawmakers.

No group has thus far claimed responsibility for the settlers' disappearance.
