Two Palestinians were killed Saturday and 30 more people were wounded in Israeli airstrikes targeting Hamas security in Gaza. The latest attack comes on the heels of a shaky ceasefire brokered by Egypt on Wednesday in an attempt to intervene in the heavy fighting in the region that had suddenly flared up after a period of relative peace. A reported 150 rocket attacks were fired on Israel this week.
