Boats off the strip are generally limited to six nautical miles offshore, and the Israeli navy regularly fires warning shots at Palestinians who breach it. A spokesperson for the Iran-backed terrorist group confirmed the men were members of its military arm.

The incident occurred in the morning in a continuation of the violent Hamas-led "March of Return" protests that began March 30 at the security fence separating Israel from the Gaza Strip.

The Al-Quds Brigades group, which is linked to the the Islamic Jihad organisation, said it would retaliate for the killings, Haaretz reported.

The Israeli military said in a statement that its "fighter jets struck military targets in a compound belonging to the Hamas terror organisation in the southern Gaza Strip".

Israel accuses Hamas of engineering the marches to carry out terror attacks and has defended its live fire regulations.

An improvised explosive device, disguised to look like a set of bolt cutters, found at the Gaza security fence on May 27, 2018. "IDF troops arrived at the scene and fired towards the suspects, who fled back into the Gaza Strip", an IDF spokesman tweeted at around noon on Saturday.

He called on the United Nations and other worldwide bodies to protect the boat leaving from the enclave run by Palestinian resistance movement Hamas.

As a result, two Gazans were killed in the attack, while another was critically injured, according to the Palestinian Health Ministry.

Israel says its actions are necessary to defend the border and stop mass incursions into its territory.
