Thaer Mohammed Al Bik, 30, and Mohammed Zuhair Al Khaldi, 26, were killed by gas fumes as they carried out an inspection of the tunnel hit by Israeli fire on Tuesday, a Palestinian group said.

Rocket fire towards Israel continued on Thursday but the intensity was sharply down, as a truce declared by Ezzedine Al Qassam Brigades appeared to be taking hold.

By mid-afternoon, nine rockets had hit southern Israel, causing no casualties, a military spokeswoman said. Another was intercepted by Iron Dome anti-rocket defence system. — AFP

In the evening, three more rockets were fired into southern Israel, without causing any casualties, a military spokesman said.
