Palestinian child and teen killed by IOF at Gaza border

Two Palestinian teenagers were killed while dozens others were injured as Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) continued to attack weekly March of Return’s peaceful protests at the Gaza borders on Friday.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health affirmed that Israeli forces shot and killed the child Hasan Iyad Shalabi, 14, and Hamza Mohammad Shteiwi, 18.

17 other protesters were injured during the attack, while hundreds were treated for teargas inhalation, the ministry added.

Three of the wounded were moved to hospital in critical condition, the PIC reporter said.

More than 260 Palestinians have been killed and over 27,000 others injured by Israeli forces since the outbreak of the Great March of Return protests at Gaza border on March 30 last year.
