Two suspects in the killing of an Italian activist died during a raid by Hamas forces at a home in central Gaza on Tuesday, the Hamas interior ministry said.

According to AFP, it said one suspect shot himself after throwing an explosive device that killed a second suspect.

A third was taken into custody with light injuries.

The raid targeted Bilal al-Omary, Mohammed al-Salfiti and Jordanian Abdul-Rahman al-Birizit, who were reportedly holed up in a house in the Nuseirat area in central Gaza.


“The operation ended with Birizit throwing an explosive device at his comrades… and then firing on himself,” the Hamas interior ministry said in a statement.
