Israeli troops kill two Gaza teens during border protests

Israeli troops kill two Gaza teens during border protests Israeli troops kill two Gaza teens during border protests

Israeli forces also wounded at least 66 other Palestinian protesters, 38 from gunfire, in demonstrations along the border. There were no reports of injuries and no Palestinian group claimed responsibility for the rockets.

A second teenager was shot in the stomach east of Gaza City, the ministry said, later identifying him as Khaled al-Rabaee, 14.

Israeli war jets had carried out a series of airstrikes on Islamic Hamas movement's military facilities in northern and central Gaza Strip in response to a drone attack into Israel, causing no injuries.

The army announced before the bombing that five rockets were allegedly launched from the Gaza Strip.

The al-Quds Brigades, the armed wing of the Islamic Jihad, said the fighter was one of its members.

The so-called "Great March of Return" also calls for Palestinians to have the right to return to land from which their families fled or were forced to flee during Israel's founding in 1948.

The exchange came hours after two Palestinian teenagers were killed by Israeli fire during clashes on the Gaza border. The spokesman did not comment on the deaths.

But in a statement, it said an estimated 6,200 "rioters and demonstrators" had gathered in locations along the border and thrown "fire bombs and explosive devices" at troops, as well as approaching the fence.

Israel says any such return would mean its end as a Jewish state and accuses Gaza's Hamas of using the protests as cover for attacks.

More than 200 Palestinians and an Israeli soldier have been killed during the marches, which had been subdued in recent months after mediators brokered an unofficial cease-fire.

The truce was negotiated by Egyptian and United Nations officials with aid from Qatar to end several severe flare-ups of violence in recent months.

Israel seized Gaza in a 1967 war and pulled out its settlers and troops in 2005.

Citing Egyptian officials, Al Arabiya broadcaster reported in late August that Egypt had threatened with suspending its mediation efforts between Israel and Hamas if the latter continued shelling Israeli territory.
