At least one Palestinian fighter died and three were hurt during Israeli military strikes in the Gaza Strip on Tuesday, Palestinian medics and the Israeli army said.
According to Reuters, a spokesman for the Islamic Jihad group said Israeli tanks fired shells and a helicopter launched a missile at its men east of the al-Bureij refugee camp in the central Gaza Strip. An Israeli army spokeswoman said: "An Israeli force identified a number of suspects planting explosives along the security fence (with Gaza). It fired at the suspects, identifying direct hits."
A Palestinian hospital source said the three wounded men were in serious condition.
