Three Palestinians were killed and one was injured after they have been targeted by the Israeli army forces in northern Gaza Strip, close to the border with Israel, medics said early on Sunday morning.

Ashraf al-Qedra said in a press statement that medical crews pulled out on Sunday morning the bodies of Mahmoud al-Walayda, 24, Mohammad Abu Namoos, 27 and Mohammad al-Taramsi, 26, from an area on the border in northern Gaza Strip.

The bodies of the three were taken to the Indonesian Hospital in northern Gaza, Xinhua reported citing the statement.

Israeli media have reported overnight that the Israeli army has foiled an infiltration attempt from the Gaza Strip into Israel, adding that a number of militants from Gaza tried to cross the fence of the border and the soldiers shot them dead.
