    Two of Abul Hassan's brothers were wounded, the family said.

     

    The Israeli army said soldiers fired at two gunmen in Yamoun and hit them.

     

    On Thursday, three Palestinians were killed in the southern Gaza strip during an Israeli incursion into the small town of Abassan.

     

    The killings are part of the ongoing Israeli offensive in Gaza and the West Bank after the abduction of a soldier in a cross-border raid near Gaza on June 25.
