According to a statement issued by the Israeli army, the soldiers killed Sunday three Palestinians in two separate incidents along the Gaza-Israel border, and arrested another Palestinian who was taken for interrogation.
Quoting a statement by the spokesperson of the Israeli army, Israeli daily Haaretz said the soldiers “shot two Palestinians, after they tried to cause damage to the border fence, killing one of them, and arrested the other.
It added that the soldiers also killed two Palestinians reportedly after they “managed to cross the border fence, and hurled firebombs at the army.”
The soldiers also abducted two Palestinians in a third incident after they reportedly “tried to damage the border fence with tools they carried,” in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.
So far, the identities of the three slain Palestinians remain unknown, as their bodies are held by Israel.
Prior to the death of the three Palestinians, the Health Ministry has reported that Israeli soldiers have killed 44 Palestinians, including five children, and injured around 7000, including many who suffered life-threatening wounds, sine the “Great March of Return” protests started in the Gaza Strip on the Palestinian Land Day, March 30, 2018.
