Three Palestinian citizens including two brothers have been killed Thursday morning in an Israeli artillery attack on Beit Hanoun north of the Gaza Strip.

Local sources reported that Israeli tanks shelled a crowd of civilians east of Beit Hanoun killing three of them and wounding many others.

The tanks kept shelling the targeted area which hindered the arrival of ambulances to evacuate the victims.

An official source from the ambulance and emergency committee told the Palestinian information center (PIC) this morning that the ambulances failed to reach the area to evacuate the wounded because of the continued artillery shelling.
