JERUSALEM (AFP) -- Three Israeli soldiers were killed in fighting inside the Gaza Strip on Wednesday, the army said, taking the total number of military deaths in the past six days to 32.

"Today, three IDF soldiers were killed in combat in the Gaza Strip," a statement said.

It said two soldiers were also severely wounded in ongoing fighting in the coastal enclave where Israel launched a ground operation on July 17, the goal of which, according to the army, was to destroy network of tunnels used by Palestinian militants for cross-border attacks.

Earlier Wednesday, Islamic Jihad's military wing said that its fighters had killed three Israeli soldiers in the southern Gaza Strip.

The al-Quds Brigades said in a statement that its militants had set up an ambush al-Khuzaa near Khan Younis, killing three soldiers.

An Israeli army spokeswoman did not comment on the claim.

Over 650 Palestinians, most of them civilians, have been killed since Israel's latest offensive on the Strip started on July 8.

The Israeli actions have been planned for weeks and nothing to do with the 3 kids killed. The Israeli PM is nothing but a liar. They behave barbarically and with no regards whatsoever to human lives. The Palestinians must continue their resistance till the last drop of their blood.
