Gaza, ALRAY - Three Palestinians have been killed and seven wounded in an internal explosion in a Beit Hanon town home, northern Gaza Strip.

Ashraf al-Qidra, the health ministry spokesman, confirmed the incident.

Three others affiliated to Islamic Jihad earlier on Tuesday were killed in an air strike in the southern Gaza Strip.

“Medical crews have moved the bodies of three died in an Israeli strike,” Health ministry spokesman Ashraf Al-Qidra told ALRAY.

He identified the Palestinians killed as Ismail Abu Joudeh, Abdel Shafi Abu Mo'mar, 23, and Shaher Abu Shanab, 24.

ALRAY reporter said the three Islamic Jihad members were driving a motorcycle near once commercial crossing - 'Sufa' in southern Gaza Strip. 

The targeting came hours after Israeli occupation tanks crossed into agricultural land bordering the security fence. 

The air strike came just hours after the Al Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, took over an unmanned Israeli drone used for surveillance and missile strikes in the same area, east of Khan Younis.

The Al Qassam Information Office released photos of the Israeli drone found on the border.

AFP quoted the Israeli military as saying the fallen drone crashed.
