Israeli Shelling Martyrs 3 Palestinians
Islam Times -“An Israel forces shelling killed three Palestinians approaching the border between Israel and Gaza,” Israel Radio claimed on Sunday. Gaza medical workers and witnesses countered the Israel Radio report, saying that the IDF shelling killed the Palestinians, with Hamas security and medical officials saying two of the Palestinian dead, in Beit Hanoun, were farmers.
Islam Times reports from Al-Manar: Earlier Sunday, Gaza resistance fighters fired three mortar shells at the northern Negev. No injuries or damages were reported.
The Israeli military Spokesman's Office stated in response that an "IDF unit spotted suspicious figures attempting to fire anti-tank missiles, at which point the soldiers returned fire."
The statement added that, in an earlier separate incident, Israeli occupation soldiers identified “suspicious figures” attempting to approach the “border fence between Israel and Gaza, with soldiers firing warning shots.”
