GAZA, Mar 31 (Reuters) Two Palestinians were killed today in clashes in Gaza between gunmen and security forces after a top militant died in a car explosion, medics said.

The clashes were triggered by the death of Abu Youssef al-Quqa, a top commander in the Popular Resistance Committees, an umbrella militant group often responsible for rocket attacks against Israel.

Gunmen loyal to Quqa blamed Israel for the killing but also said members of the Palestinian security services were involved. Israel has denied any involvement in the explosion.
