Gaza - Ma'an - Two Israelis were killed on Wednesday when Palestinian fighters entered the Gaza Strip's Nahal Oz crossing point and began shooting at the workers, Israeli media reported.

Abu Mujahid, the spokesperson of the armed wing of the Popular Resistance Committees, the An-Nasser Salah Addin Brigades, claimed that three Israeli soldiers were killed in the raid. He said that the aim of the operation was to abduct Israeli soldiers.

Israeli officials said that no Israelis were abducted.

Meanwhile, Israeli warplanes launched a missile at a group of Palestinian fighters in a car in the Zaytoun neighborhood of Gaza City. Fierce fighting is also taking place between Palestinian fighters and Israeli troops east of Gaza City.

The military wing of Islamic Jihad, the Al-Quds Brigades, also claimed responsibility for the shooting near Nahal Oz.

Nahal Oz terminal is the Gaza Strip's main crossing point for liquid fuels.

Earlier on Wednesday, one Hamas fighter and one Israeli soldier were killed after Israeli soldiers invaded the Gaza Strip near the city of Khan Younis.
