Cairo's efforts to conclude a comprehensive peace deal between Hamas and Israel is under threat after the latter introduced a new condition on lifting the blockade of Gaza.

At least two Palestinians were martyred on Tuesday when Israel shelled a Hamas site in the northern Gaza Strip, Gaza's Health Ministry said in a statement.

The statement added that an Israeli army-affiliated tank then "targeted the post from which the shots were fired".
