A Gaza armed group said two of its members were killed while carrying out a “Jihad mission” on Tuesday.The Palestine Press Agency assumes that these are the same people.
A spokesman for the An-Nasser Salah Ad-Din Brigades, the armed wing of the Popular Resistance Committees, said in a phone call, “Ahmad Abu Darb and Ibrahim Qatasha died while they were implementing a jihadi mission” without explaining the nature of this mission.
Meanwhile local sources said that two people were killed in an unexplained explosion in that set fire to a house north of the city of Rafah, in the southern Gaza Strip.
It was not immediately clear if the explosion was related to the deaths of the two fighters.
An explosion in Rafah indicates that some explosives that were recently smuggled in to Gaza went off a bit earlier than intended.
The 2009 PalArab self-death count is now at 203.
