Three Palestinians were killed yesterday in two separate incidents on the Israel-Gaza border, according to the Israeli army.
The statement said that the first incident occurred when two Palestinian men "attempted to infiltrate" Israel from a southern section of the Gaza border fence. Israeli soldiers shot and killed one of the men, while the other sustained non-fatal wounds and was later taken to an unknown location for questioning.
The identities of the men who were killed remained unknown.
According to statistics released by the Gaza Ministry of Health, the number of Palestinians killed by the Israeli army now stands at 47, as the "Great March of Return" demonstrations draw closer to their sixth week.
