Gaza health ministry: Two killed by Israeli fire in violent border clashes

Gaza health ministry: Two killed by Israeli fire in violent border clashes”

The statement also said that 17 other protesters were wounded by the Israeli snipers, including one who sustained serious wounds as he was shot in the head.

Hundreds of mourners marched through the streets of central Gaza Strip on Saturday carrying the body of 14-year-old Hassan Shalabi who was killed on Friday by Israeli troops in protests along the perimeter fence.

Israeli troops shot dead two Palestinian teenagers including a 14-year-old boy during Gaza border protests on Friday, Palestinian health officials said.

The spokesman said soldiers used riot dispersal equipment and opened fired "in accordance with standard operating procedures".

During the same period, two Israelis were killed in the context of Gaza hostilities while another 52 suffered injuries, the report said. Israel says it is protecting its borders and accuses Hamas of orchestrating the protests.

Earlier this week, Israel began reinforcing its Gaza security fence with a galvanized steel barrier 65 kilometers long (40 miles) and six meters high (20 feet).

Since late March last year, the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip have been carrying out weekly protests, known as the Great March of Return, against Israel's 12-year crippling blockade on the coastal enclave.

At least 249 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire since then, the majority shot during clashes, though others have been hit by tank fire or air strikes.

Israel has fought three wars against Hamas since the miltant group took control of the enclave in 2007. The violence sometimes escalated into brief rounds of cross-border exchanges of rockets and airstrikes. Palestine Prisoner's Society (PPS) confirmed that Israeli forces detained three Palestinians in the Tuqu village, in the southern West Bank district of Bethlehem.
