GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Three Palestinians were killed and others wounded during an Israeli airstrike on Wednesday evening targeting several alleged Hamas movement sites in the central and eastern besieged Gaza Strip.

According to a spokesperson for the Ministry of Health in Gaza, three Palestinians were killed and another Palestinian critically injured, due to Israeli airstrikes targeting a group of residents in eastern Gaza.

Ashraf al-Qidra identified the three killed Palestinians as Ahmad Munir Suleiman al-Bassous, 28, Ubada Asaad Khader Farawneh, 29, and Muhammad Tawfiq Muhammad al-Arier, 27.

The Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of the Hamas movement, said in a statement that the three killed Palestinians are members of the brigades.

Meanwhile, another moderately injured Palestinian was immediately transferred to a hospital after being targeted by Israeli warplanes.

Security sources said that the Israeli artillery fired two shells near the al-Breij refugee camp in central Gaza and another two shells at a Hamas monitoring site east of the refugee camp.

Sources confirmed that another artillery shell also coincided with a Hamas observatory outpost east of Gaza City.

An Israeli army spokesperson confirmed that Israeli warplanes shelled seven Hamas military sites belonging to the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades in the Gaza Strip. He added that the shelling came in response to opened fire towards Israeli forces.

The spokesperson also said its forces came under fire from a Palestinian group in the central Gaza Strip, injuring one Israeli soldier. He is in serious-to-moderate condition.
