Five Palestinian workers in Gaza were injured by Israeli gunfire after entering an area that Israel has identified as a launching ground for rockets.

The men were collecting stones Tuesday near the former Israeli community of Eli Sinai, which has been deemed a no-go zone by the Israeli military since rockets directed at southern Israel are launched from there, the Palestinian Ma’an News agency reported.

The Israel Defense Forces confirmed firing at the men and said there were three direct hits. An IDF statement said that warning shots were fired before the Palestinians’ lower bodies were targeted, according to protocol.

Meanwhile, Israel’s Shin Bet on Tuesday arrested three Palestinians accused of carrying out a shooting attack on an Israeli married couple driving in the Hebron Hills in the West Bank in September.

Both were injured in the attack; the woman delivered a baby prematurely as a result.
