Three Palestinians were wounded on Saturday morning when Israeli occupation forces (IOF) raided the east of Qarara, Khan Younis district south of the Gaza Strip, local and medical sources said.
They told the PIC reporter that a number of IOF tanks advanced 300 meters into the area amidst violent artillery and machinegun fire wounding three citizens who were later hospitalized.
The sources pointed out that the incursion followed clashes with resistance fighters who monitored the infiltration of a special IOF force in the area and engaged the intruders as sounds of explosions and shelling were heard.
They said that the IOF gunships were taking part in the clashes using their machineguns.
IOF troops also detained a Palestinian woman in Al-Khalil on Saturday at the pretext that she attacked an Israeli settler.
Local sources said that the soldiers claimed that she stabbed the settler but would not identify her.
