Gaza City, October 12 (RHC)-- Israeli regime forces have killed two Palestinian teenagers and injured 10 more people in the besieged Gaza Strip in clashes with protesters near the border fence in southern Gaza.
Local medics with Gaza’s emergency medical services said on Sunday that 13-year-old Marwan Barbakh and 15-year-old Khalil Othman were shot dead by Israeli police forces during anti-Israel protests and clashes east of the city’s Khan Yunis neighborhood.
The latest killings by Israeli forces came shortly after similar clashes killed seven Palestinian protesters and wounded 145 more in the bloodiest battles in the Israeli- blockaded territory since the summer 2014 war.
This is while the Israeli military claimed that "Palestinians entered the perimeter along the security fence, approached the fence, hauled rocks and rolled burning tires at it" during a "violent riot" in southern Gaza.
Israeli troops fired warning shots in the air, but when that failed to stop the Palestinian protesters, "they fired toward main instigators", an Israeli spokeswoman further claimed as cited in an AFP report.
According to the report, clashes between the angry Palestinians and the Israeli regime forces were also raging near the Erez crossing on the enclave’s northern border, east of Gaza City, as well as in central Gaza, where the Israeli military claimed "tens of suspects breached the fence."
