Two Palestinian youths after midnight on Sunday were killed by an Israeli missile east of Jabalya refugee camp in the northern Gaza Strip.
Palestinian medical sources on Sunday dawn announced that two youths were killed in the missile, in which an Israeli army aircraft targeted a group of Palestinian youths.
The missile was fired towards the group of men under the pretext of sending “burning balloons and kites towards the Gaza enclave settlements.
The spokesman of the Palestinian Ministry of Health in the Gaza Strip, Dr. Ashraf al-Qudra, in a brief statement on Twitter, said that the two youths arrived at the Indonesian hospital as a result of the targeting of the Israeli occupation forces east of Jabalia.”
Al-Qudra announced that the two martyrs were Ayman Nafez Rabie Al-Najjar, 24, and Muhannad Majid Jamal Hamouda, 24.
The occupation forces recently have increased their attacks on youths near the besieged Gaza border allegedly to stop “the launch of balloons and burning kite planes and deter the launchers.”
