Two soldiers suffered a sprained ankle and a slight back injury.

Cooper declined to provide details on the condition of the third American, who was taken to a local hospital.

However, a US defense official told Reuters military correspondent Phil Stewart that the serviceman was seriously injured and was airlifted to an Israeli hospital.

The nature of the injury is not yet known.

The US military has built a floating pier off the coast of the Gaza Strip to help deliver aid to the Palestinian-controlled territory.
