Hours after 16 people were wounded by Israeli warplanes; Israeli soldiers have opened fire on Palestinians, wounding three workers in the Gaza Strip.

The incident happened in the northern parts of the coastal strip on Wednesday, a Press TV correspondent reported

The Palestinians were collecting scrap metal when Israeli forces opened fire from their check point on the Gaza border.

Earlier, Israeli F-16 warplanes attacked the northern Gaza Strip, reportedly leaving 16 people, including civilians and police officers, wounded.

The Israeli Air Force also struck the south, targeting the tunnels near a disused airport south of the town of Rafah.

The area near the Rafah border crossing -- the sliver's only border that bypasses Israel -- has been recently targeted in dozens of Israeli aerial assaults.
