Israeli Fire Kills Two Palestinian Teenagers In Gaza

Two Palestinians were killed by Israeli fire, in the east of Rafah in Southern Gaza.

The two Palestinian fatalities were identified by the Gaza Health Ministry as Salam Sabah and Abdullah Abu Sheikha, both 17.

According to Palestinian eyewitnesses, they were shot by Israeli forces near the border.

A Palestinian security source said the Israeli air strikes hit three bases belonging to Hamas in the east of the blockaded Gaza enclave.

Two Palestinians were injured in the raids.

Earlier in the day the army said "two soldiers were severely wounded, one moderately and one slightly" when an improvised explosive device blew up along the border fence with Gaza.
