Gaza: Hospital officials today report three Palestinian women were killed late Saturday night after Israeli forces fired three tank shells into a civilian home. Selmiya al-Malalha, Hekmat al-Malalha, and Nasra al-Malalha were siting in their home in the Gaza strip near the Jewish settlement of Netzarim when without reason , warning or provocation they were fired upon.

The Israeli army confirmed the "incident" saying the attack was in retaliation after shots were fired at Israeli positions on three different occasions. However, Mohammed al-Rash, who lives 30 metres from the womens house reported that "We were surprised by the tank fire because we had not heard any shooting nearby.."
