Israel begins building marine barrier along Gaza border

According to the military, the bomb "went off during the clearing procedure".

The third member succumbed to his wounds and died a few hours after the incident. "In response, an IDF tank targeted a military observation post in the southern Gaza Strip".

"We will not give up our duty to the blood of the martyrs shed by the occupation, and we know how to respond to this unsafe escalation", Islamic Jihad said in a statement.

In February, a senior navy officer warned that Hamas was increasingly turning to the sea to carry out attacks against Israeli troops and civilians.

Islamic Jihad is the second-most powerful armed group in the Gaza Strip, after Hamas, which runs the Palestinian enclave.
