Three Palestinian fighters wounded by Israeli fire in Gaza

Gaza - Ma'an - Three Palestinian fighters were injured late on Saturday night by Israeli shelling after reportedly hurling an explosive device at Israeli special forces who entered the Gaza Strip east of Al-Maghazi Refugee Camp.

According to An-Nasser Salah Addin Brigades, the military wing of the Popular Resistance Committees, Israeli soldiers were also injured in the event.

The Brigades said their attack came in retaliation for "ongoing Israeli aggression" in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, An-Nasser Brigades said in a statement which also affirmed that "Jihad" is the best tool for liberating the Palestinian lands.

At mid day a homemade projectile landed in an open area in the Israeli border town of Sderot, causing no damage. No Palestinian group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack.

Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak decided again to keep the border crossings between Israel and the Gaza Strip closed in reaction to continued shelling of Israeli targets.

Israel has maintained a near total closure of the Gaza Strip since 4 November, the same day it invaded the coastal territory, touching off more than three weeks of violence that have threatened a five-month old truce agreement.
