The IOF troops killed three resistance fighters affiliated Al-Quds Brigades, the armed wing of the Islamic Jihad Movement and another fighter affiliated with Al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, in Beit Lahia, northern Gaza Strip, and wounded a number of Palestinian citizens including two women in the east of Gaza city.
Palestinian security and medical sources told the PIC reporter that three fighters of Al-Quds Brigades called Basil Shabet, Mohamed Al-Sha"er and Hasan Shaqqura were killed after an Israeli warplane fired a number of air-to-ground missiles at them near the Shayma school in Beit Lahia.
Mahmoud Hammouda, 19, affiliated with Al-Qassam Brigades was also proclaimed dead after he sustained serious injuries on Saturday afternoon in Israeli artillery shelling of Beit Lahia.
The Israeli artillery shelled on the same day a residential area in east of Gaza which led to the injury of three Palestinian citizens including two women.
The Palestinian citizens in the Burka village, north of the Nablus city in the West Bank, also reported that the IOF troops reinforced by armored vehicles invaded the village at noon Friday amid heavy gunfire which caused a state of panic and fear among the citizens.
The Burka residents said that the IOF troops invaded their village many times which led many shops to shut down.
