Three Palestinian militants were killed in an Israeli airstrike over the northern Gaza Strip thursday. The Israeli military said the militants were trying to plant explosives near a border fence when they were attacked.

The incident follows the killing overnight of three other militants in a separate airstrike. In that incident Israeli spokesmen said the strike stopped the militants from attempting to fire rockets into Israel. Gaza officials confirmed that the men killed all had ties to local militant groups.
