Hundreds Mourn for 3 Palestinians

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.
