Security sources said that three unidentified civilians were killed when Israeli tanks, stationed near Johr al-Deek, opened heavy machinegun fire at them.  


The three men, all aged 19, were apparently hit by Israeli tank fire near the settlement of Netzarim late Sunday, the officials said. The three came from Dir-al-Balah refugee camp, one official said. 


The bodies were recovered Monday by Palestinian medics, who said the men were unarmed.
