JERUSALEM (AP) — Hamas security officials said Sunday that three Palestinians have been killed by Israeli tank fire in the northern Gaza Strip. Five people were wounded.

There was no immediate comment Sunday from the Israeli military.

Israeli forces and Palestinians frequently clash in the area.

Israel charges that Palestinians try to infiltrate or plant explosives along Gaza’s border with Israel.

Palestinians say that Israel is enforcing a wide no-go zone in Gaza, and that soldiers open fire on farmers and other civilians who enter.

Hamas is the Islamic militant group that rules Gaza.
