Quds Brigades say fighters killed 3 Israeli soldiers in southern Gaza

July 23, 2014 4:34 P.M. (Updated: July 24, 2014 2:46 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Islamic Jihad's military wing on Wednesday said that its fighters had killed three Israeli soldiers in the southern Gaza Strip.

The al-Quds Brigades said in a statement that its militants had set up an ambush al-Khuzaa near Khan Younis, killing three soldiers.

An Israeli army spokeswoman did not immediately comment on the claim.

Also Wednesday, Hamas' al-Qassam Brigades said its fighters had carried out an attack on an Israeli tank in the northern Gaza Strip.

"Our fighters at 10 a.m. today bombed a 'Merkavah' tank in eastern Jabaliya," the Brigades' statement said.

According to official Israeli figures, 29 soldiers have died in Gaza since it began its ground invasion on July 17.

Over 650 Palestinians, most of them civilians, have been killed since Israel's latest offensive on the Strip started on July 8.
