Israeli army kills three Gaza militants after foiling border bombing

Israeli soldiers on the border with Gaza

According to Israeli media, the defence ministry ordered the construction of the barrier in the aftermath of the 2014 war with Gaza and after discovering that Hamas fighters had successfully entered Israel by sea.

Palestinians in the Gaza Strip will try to breach Israel's blockade by boat this week in a fresh challenge to Israeli forces following weeks of deadly protests and clashes, organizers said Sunday.

Still, at least 116 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire in the Gaza Strip since mass protests broke out on 30 March, according to newly released figures from the health ministry in the Hamas-run strip.

Over a hundred Palestinians have been killed in the rolling protests and clashes, mostly from Israeli gunfire. A spokesperson for the Iran-backed terrorist group confirmed the men were members of its military arm. "IDF troops arrived at the scene and fired towards the suspects, who fled back into the Gaza Strip", an IDF spokesman tweeted at around noon on Saturday.

Just hours after an airstrike on Palestinian armed units in the southern part of the Gaza Strip, the Israeli military struck what they said was a Hamas target near Khan Yunis in the southern Gaza Strip with tank fire Sunday morning.

It added that the strike was also in retaliation for repeated Palestinian attempts to damage the border fence and "security infrastructure" during ongoing border protests.

A day earlier, Israeli aircraft attacked two targets belonging to the Hamas movement, although no casualties were reported. No injuries were reported in the incident.

It said most of the 86 people injured Friday were treated for tear gas inhalation while some sustained gunshot wounds.

Israel says its actions are necessary to defend the border and stop mass incursions into its territory.

Military planners have begun implementing new measures to combat the assaults, including lethal options drawn from the IDF's responses to rocket launches and other terror attacks.
