Gaza (dpa) - Israeli soldiers killed four Palestinian militants during clashes Thursday in the central Gaza Strip's al-Maghazi refugee camp, medics at al-Aqsa hospital in the salient said.

Three of the dead belonged to the Islamic Jihad, and the fourth was a member of the Popular Resistance Committees.

An Israeli military spokesman in Tel Aviv said the troops were on a "routine operation" to prevent militants from placing explosive devices along the border fence, or trying to infiltrate into Israel.

An Israeli soldier was lightly wounded in the operation.
