Three Palestinians were killed by Israeli soldiers in the northern Gaza Strip, the Palestinian health ministry said on Sunday.
The ministry said another Palestinian was hospitalised in the shooting that came after the Israeli army said an attack helicopter and tank had fired at "armed suspects" along the barrier that separates Israel from Gaza.
"We just identified a number of armed suspects from Gaza approaching the security fence with Israel. We fired towards them," the army said a statement posted on its Twitter account.
The latest violence came after Palestinians in the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip fired three rockets at southern Israel late Saturday, the Israeli army said, in the second such attack in 24 hours.
There were no immediate reports of casualties.
The army said two of the projectiles had been intercepted by its Iron Dome aerial defence system but it did not specify what happened to the third rocket.
On Friday Palestinians in Gaza fired a rocket at Sderot, in what the army said was the first such attack since July 12.
In response, Israeli warplanes struck at least three targets in the Gaza Strip early on Saturday but caused no casualties, a Palestinian security source said.
The strikes hit a Hamas observation post in Beit Hanoun, in the northern Gaza Strip, an unidentified target near Gaza City and open ground near Deir El Balah in the central part of the territory, the source said.
The ministry said Ahmed Qura, 23, died "as a result of wounds sustained (from) the Israeli occupation forces' fire" on Friday.
Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said an unidentified "terrorist" had approached security forces at the vehicle passage of the checkpoint, ignoring calls to stop and pulling a knife before being shot in the leg.
At least 302 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire in Gaza or the border area since March 2018, the majority during the demonstrations and clashes.
The bodies of six people killed in Gaza City were brought into Shifa hospital in taxis and ambulances early Wednesday, as relatives wept and screamed. Medics and witnesses said they were civilians who lived in densely populated neighbourhoods.

As part of the ‘Be Road Safe’ campaign, the Abu Dhabi Police have urged drivers to use the right lane of the road if they are driving at slow speeds so as not to obstruct the vehicles that are traveling at the specified speed on the road and give way to the vehicles that have the advantage of the road coming from the back or from the left side (fast track).
