Zionist troops forces have shot and injured a Palestinian teenager in the Gaza Strip days after the regime’s air raids left two children martyred in the besieged Palestinian enclave
Palestinian sources said the unnamed 16-year-old Palestinian boy was collecting gravel east of Gaza City on Sunday morning, when Israeli troopers opened fire, Arabic-language Safa news agency reported.
Gaza’s Health Ministry spokesman, Ashraf al-Qidra, said the boy was struck in the hand, describing his gunshot wounds as moderate.
Separately, Israeli soldiers standing on watchtowers overlooking Sufa kibbutz on the border between Israel and the Gaza Strip fired shots at Palestinian shepherds and workers and hurled smoke bombs at them. There were no immediate reports of casualties.
On Saturday, a six-year-old Palestinian girl, identified as Israa Abu Khussa, succumbed to grave injuries she sustained earlier in the day, when her home was struck in Israeli airstrike against northern Gaza Strip.
Her death came only hours after her 10-year-old brother, Yasin, was killed in the aerial attack and buried in al-Salatin cemetery.
