Hundreds of Palestinians have attended the funeral procession of three people killed by Israeli fighter jets in an overnight airstrike.
The three lost their lives while driving in a car from the town of Khan Yunis to the Deir al Balah refugee camp early Saturday.
Medical sources say a fourth Palestinian has been injured in the incident.
The Israeli strike in southern Gaza created fears of an escalation into an all-out confrontation.
Hamas has identified the victims as members of its Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades.
The Brigades described the airstrike as a "serious escalation" and warned that Israel "will bear all the consequences."
Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum described the airstrike as "a crime and a systematic continuation of murder, criminality and state terrorism."
On Tuesday, multiple attacks left at least 10 people dead, including 4 children in Gaza.
