The Hamas-run Gaza Health Ministry says three Palestinians have been wounded after Israeli tanks shelled sites in northern Gaza earlier today.

Gunfire erupted from the coastal enclave earlier today, lightly wounding an Israeli civilian near the Gaza border. The civilian, who works for a Defense Ministry contractor, was conducting maintenance work on the Gaza security fence, according to the Defense Ministry.

Israel responded by shelling Hamas outposts near Beit Hanoun in northern Gaza.

The identity of the wounded Palestinians was not immediately clear.
