GAZA CITY, Gaza (CNN) -- A Palestinian woman opened fire Saturday on Israeli border police in southern Israel before they shot and killed her, an Israeli spokesman said.

Moshe Fintzy, a border police spokesman, said the woman approached the entrance of the border guards' base and was not allowed to enter. She then opened fire, and the border police responded, Fintzy said.

The incident occurred near Beer Sheva, in southern Israel.

No other information was immediately available.

Earlier Saturday two members of a Palestinian militant group were killed in clashes with members of the Israel Defense Forces in Gaza, security and medical sources said.

The clashes between members of the Salah-a-Din Brigades and members of the IDF occurred east of Jabalya, the sources said.

The Salah-a-Din Brigades is the military wing of the Popular Resistance Committee.
