Three Israel Defense Forces (IDF) soldiers were killed on Wednesday morning during clashes with Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip, IDF confirmed to Xinhua.

Another two soldiers were wounded when an IDF unit entered the Hamas-controlled strip to pursue a group of suspicious figures who approached the security fence near Kibbutz Be'eri and then were engaged in exchanges of heavy gunfire, said the IDF.

The wounded have been sent to hospital for treatment, it added.

Hamas' armed wing, the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, has claimed responsibility for the attack on the IDF troops, Israeli daily Yedioth Ahronoth reported.

Meanwhile, another IDF soldier was wounded by a Palestinian sniper during an operation near Khan Yunis in southern Gaza Strip.

The casualties came a week after an IDF soldier and two civilians were killed in the Gaza Strip by Gazan gunmen who infiltrated into an Israeli border terminal and opened fire.
