CCTV footage from the Gaza Strip appears to show the moment two terrorists were eliminated in an Israel Air Force precision strike.

The terrorists' car can be seen traveling down a quiet road before suddenly exploding after apparently being hit by a missile.

The IDF confirmed the strike Friday afternoon, and identified the two dead terrorists as Osama Hasoumi and Mohammed Fatsih, saying they were targeted for their involvement in recent rocket fire against Israeli communities in the Israel's southern Negev region.

An IDF statement said Israel held Gaza's Hamas rulers responsible for any rocket fire against Israel.

It came just hours after terrorists detonated a bomb near troops manning Israel's security fence. A spokesman for Gaza's health services, Ashraf al-Qudra, told AFP the five were hurt after IDF tanks returned fire at positions east of Khan Yunis in southern Gaza. 

The Israeli military said "an explosive device was activated against (army) forces operating adjacent to the security fence in the southern Gaza Strip," causing no injuries.

"The force responded with tank fire towards lookout posts used to guide the attack against the forces," it said.

Later Friday Gazan terrorist groups fired a barrage of rockets against Israeli towns and villages in the south. Three rockets exploded in the Eshkol Region Friday evening, and two more rockets were shot down by Israel's Iron Dome missile defense system as they were targeting the Hof Ashkelon Region.
