Israeli soldiers shot and killed three Palestinian men in the Gaza Strip on Thursday, said Palestinian medics who recovered the bodies near a border zone.
The Israeli military had no immediate comment.
The medics said the Palestinians whose bodies were found in northern Gaza, were shot by Israeli forces before dawn on Thursday.
Residents said they had heard gunfire in the area.
Palestinians in impoverished and war-ravaged Gaza frequently search for construction materials -- one of the many commodities turned scarce by the Israel-imposed blockade -- near the border with Israel.
