"The resistance factions will respond to the [Israeli] crime in the way they see fit", the group said in a statement.
Palestinians held a funeral procession Monday for three Palestinian boys killed in an Israeli airstrike on the Gaza Strip frontier. According to the IDF, it struck three Palestinians who were attempting to place an explosive device near the border fence in the southern Gaza Strip. It gave their ages as 14 and 15.
The boys were identified by the health ministry as Khaled abu Said, 14, Mohammed Abu Zaher and Mohammed al-Satari, both 13.
The incident occurred after months of protests and clashes along the Gaza border.
Confirming that they had approached the fence separating the palestinian enclave in Israel, the NGO based in Gaza, had said that the rescuers have recovered the body of the side from gaza "have confirmed that the children had nothing" as the weapons on them.
Residents said children often go to the border area to plant traps used to catch birds, to forage for food for livestock or tend to crops. According to the U.N., during the border protests, over 1,000 children have been injured by Israeli forces in the besieged Gaza Strip during demonstrations, according to the U.N. Children's Fund (UNICEF).
Israel and Palestinian militants in Gaza have fought three wars since 2008 and the recent unrest has sparked fears of a fourth.
Hamas says the blockade must be lifted first and has vowed to continue the weekly protests, in which more than 160 Palestinians have been killed since March.
Palestinians and rights groups say protesters have been shot while posing little threat.
