Two die in Gaza missile strike

An Israeli missile strike has reportedly killed two suspected Islamic militants in Gaza.

Palestinian officials said the two were killed as the missile hit their vehicle near a crowded public park in Gaza City at around midday.

The explosion set the car on fire and also wounded five bystanders.

The identities of the dead were not immediately released.

One is thought to be a follower of the Islamic militant Hamas group that rules Gaza and the other was from the Islamic Jihad group.

Israel's military had no immediate comment. Israel has repeatedly targeted vehicles carrying suspected militants.
