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".

Israel's security cabinet discussed the proposal on Sunday, but afterwards ministers said only that the Israeli military was "prepared for any scenario".

"The group added that "DCIP evidence has determined on multiple occasions that children killed along the Gaza Strip perimeter did not pose a direct, mortal threat at the time of their death", while noting that under worldwide law, the use lethal force is strictly reserved for instances when a" direct and mortal threat to life or of serious injury exists". No Israeli soldiers were injured in the Hamas attack. Israel has said they only opened fire in self-defence or on people trying to infiltrate its territory.

The cross-border incident came after a delegation of senior Hamas officials visited Gaza to discuss a ceasefire agreement with Israel proposed by the United Nations and Egypt.

An Israeli official told Israeli media that no agreement with Hamas would take place without the release of two Israeli civilians, Avera Mengistu and Hisham al-Sayed, and the bodies of two soldiers, Oron Shaul and Hadar Goldin.
