Eye witnesses say Sharfa and the two others are members of Hamas' military wing, however Izz al-Din al-Qassam has yet to confirm this.


Heavy IDF machinery performed routine work on the border fence overnight, close to the site of the blast and likely entered into Gaza. It is possible the three aimed to target the vehicles and suffered a work accident.
