Medics blamed Israeli tank fire for the injuries.
GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- Medics said three Palestinians sustained injuries early Friday in a shelling attack in the central Gaza Strip, but Israel's army denied involvement.
Ashraf al-Qidra, spokesman of the Gaza health ministry, told Ma’an that two injured people were transferred to al-Shifa hospital and a third was transferred to al-Aqsa hospital.
Al-Qidra said the three victims were moderately injured in a shelling attack on al-Burej refugee camp.
However an Israeli army spokesman told Ma'an there was no military activity in the area.
