Gaza - Ma'an - Israeli raids on the Gaza Strip left seven people dead, including three children on Wednesday.

Israeli warplanes and tanks launched a series of attacks on the northern and the eastern Gaza Strip, Ma'an's reporter said.

Dr Jum'a As-Saqa, head of public relations at Ash-Shifaa' Hospital in Gaza City said that two dead bodies arrived at Ash-Shifaa' hospital. He identified them as 'Aatif Al-Gharably and Mazin Abu Qumbuz from the Shuja'iyya neighborhood of Gaza City.

Another man from Shuja'iyya Muhammad Abu Jabah was killed after Israeli soldiers opened fire on him in his gas station.

Dr As-Saqa added that another Gazan citizen was killed in the Al-Mansoura neighborhood in the central Gaza Strip when he was hit by a missile fired by Israeli warplanes. The victim has not been identified.

The military wing of Islamic Jihad, the Al-Quds Brigades, announced that two of the four activists who conducted the shooting at Nahal Oz are still missing. Meanwhile, the Israeli army announced that two of the attackers have been killed.

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.
