The Israeli military said the attack was a response to an explosive being placed near the border fence, which burst while being dismantled.

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman said that the construction of the barrier constitutes an additional blow to Hamas' capabilities: "This is the only barrier of its kind in the world, which will effectively block the possibility of infiltrating into Israel by sea", he said.

There have been no Israeli casualties along the Gaza frontier, but Israel has reported extensive damage to farmland on its side of the border from firebomb-bearing kites flown over by Palestinians.

The ministry identified those killed by tank fire as Hussein al-Amour, 25, and Abdul Haleem al-Naqa, 28.

According to the Islamic Jihad group, two men were part of their armed wing, called the al-Quds Brigades.

Since then, Israel has been preparing for possible attacks by sea by Hamas, especially as the IDF has improved its ability to detect and destroy Hamas tunnels under the fence separating the Gaza Strip from Israel.

According to the Israeli army, the four were in Israel for about a minute and left a tent that read "The March of Return".

No injuries were reported either from local sources or the IDF.

No Israelis have been killed in the clashes.

At least 116 civilians have been allegedly killed by the fire of Israel Defence Forces fire and over 13,000 wounded since the "Great March of Return" began.

It said troops responded with tear gas and live fire.

Low-level demonstrations along the border have continued since protests peaked on 14 May, when at least 61 Palestinians died while tens of thousands of Gazans protested as the United States moved its embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv.

The water barricade will join its overland "brother" that has been under construction around the coastal enclave since 2016 - a 60-kilometer wall meant to stop Hamas from tunneling under the border into Israel, as it has tried doing numerous times over recent years. It accuses Hamas of trying to carry out attacks under the guise of protests.
