Israeli troops kill Palestinian teenagers in latest Gaza protests

Israeli troops kill Palestinian teenagers in latest Gaza protests

Police confirmed the suspect's account was that he had left his home in the West Bank in the morning armed with a knife and headed towards Jerusalem.

Israeli forces arrested Erfaiyeh in the West Bank city of Ramallah on Saturday.

The Israeli army declined to comment on the death, but said that 8,200 "rioters and demonstrators" had been protesting along the frontier.

The Israeli army regularly arrests and shoots unarmed Palestinian fishermen, shepherds and farmers in the border areas if they near the moderation zone, as the authorities have not clarified the exact area assigned to that zone.

Two Palestinian teenagers were killed by Israeli fire yesterday during clashes along the Gaza border, the health ministry in the Hamas-run enclave said.

He noted that dozens were injured in eastern Gaza, including 17 shot by live Israeli soldiers' gunshots, adding that they were referred to hospitals all over Gaza while the others were treated by paramedics in the field.

The Israeli military said it had opened fire in response to explosives and rocks hurled at the border fence. Israeli troops "responded with riot dispersal means and fired according to standard operating procedures", he added.

Since late March last year, the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip have been carrying out weekly protests, known as the Great March of Return, against Israel's 12-year crippling blockade on the coastal enclave.

Egypt has since eased Palestinian movement through its border and Israel allowed Qatar to send financial aid to Gaza, but the Hamas says this is insufficient. Protests have dwindled in recent months after an informal agreement between Israel and Hamas.

Around 2 million people live in the Gaza Strip, which the United Nations has warned faces a severe humanitarian crisis.
