Two of those killed were identified as 25-year-old Hussein al-Amour, 28-year-old Abdul Haleem al-Naqa, according to the Palestinian health ministry.

"A short while ago, IAF fighter jets struck military targets in a compound belonging to the Hamas terror organization in the southern Gaza Strip", a military statement said. The bomb was detonated by army engineers, causing no casualties, the military said on Twitter.

Low-level demonstrations along the border have continued since protests peaked on May 14, when at least 61 Palestinians died as tens of thousands of Gazans protested the U.S. moving its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

"The IDF and the security forces are working around the clock to defend the State of Israel, to protect the citizens of Israel and to defend the borders of Israel", the prime minister concluded.

It accuses Hamas, with whom it has fought three wars since 2008, of seeking to use the protests as cover to carry out violence.
