The Israeli military opened fire at a group of Palestinians as they tried to cross the Gaza border, killing three men and injuring another, Chinese news agency, Xinhua, reported on Sunday.

The Israeli military said an attack helicopter and a tank fired at the “armed suspects adjacent to the security fence in the northern Gaza Strip".

Palestinian officials confirmed the casualties.

The incident came amid a recent escalation of tension between Israel and Palestine despite efforts by Egypt to broker a cease-fire agreement.
