Two teenagers killed by IDF on border east of Gaza City, rocket fire returned

IDF killed two teenagers on Sunday claiming they were approaching the 'no-go zone'. Three Palestinian rockets were fired by the PFLP today, one landing near Ashkelon.
The bodies of two Gaza teenagers were retrieved by Palestinian medics late Sunday morning, after being killed by Israeli fire some 12 hours earlier in the border area east of Gaza City.

Medical crews said they were only permitted to access the site, east of Juhor Addik and north of the Al-Bureij refugee camp, when they got a call advising them of the deaths Sunday morning.

The bodies were taken to the Ash-Shifa Hospital in Gaza City, where they were identified as Imad Farajallah, 17, and Qasim Salah Iteiwa, 17, both from the An-Nuseirat refugee camp in central Gaza. more
