JERUSALEM, Aug. 10 (Xinhua) -- The Israeli army's tanks Friday evening struck two Hamas posts in the northern Gaza Strip, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) reported.
About 9,000 Palestinians Friday gathered in five locations along the Gaza Strip security fence, burning tires adjacent to the security fence, hurling rocks, explosive devices and firebombs at IDF troops and the security fence, according to the IDF.
A number of Palestinians hurled a grenade at IDF troops in the northern Gaza Strip, said the IDF. No injuries to IDF troops were reported.
Two Palestinians, one of whom was a medic, were killed, and 307 Palestinians on Friday were wounded in clashes near the Gaza-Israel border, according to the report of Gaza's Health Ministry.
Israel's security cabinet announced on Thursday night it will continue its strikes in Gaza, despite Egyptian efforts to achieve a cease-fire after two days of severe escalation.
Israeli media reported that Israel is denying it ever agreed to a cease-fire with Hamas.
Israeli war jets have stricken more than 150 Hamas sites in Gaza, killing a pregnant woman, her baby and a Hamas fighter, while Gaza militants launched about 200 rockets towards southern Israel on Wednesday and Thursday.
