3 injured in Israeli airstrike on southern Gaza


GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Three Palestinians were injured after an Israeli airstrike targeted the southern Gaza Strip on Thursday, medical officials said.

Gaza's health ministry spokesman, Ashraf al-Qidra, told Ma'an that an Israeli plane fired a missile at a three-wheeled vehicle east of Khan Younis, injuring two men.

A child standing by the window in a nearby house was injured by broken glass.

All three were taken to Kamal Nasser hospital in Khan Younis for treatment.

Earlier, Israeli military vehicles crossed around 200 meters into a border area east of Khan Younis, forcing farmers to flee the area.

Eyewitness said that Palestinian fighters then fired several mortar shells at the vehicles. more
