Gaza boy killed by Israeli troops, Palestinian officials say


A Palestinian boy who died in southern Gaza was killed by Israeli troops, Palestinian officials said.

The boy, 13, was hit by machine-gun fire from Israeli helicopters or tanks that targeted houses and farms near Khan Yunis, the Palestinian Maan news agency reported, quoting a Gaza medical official.

The Israel Defense Forces said it did not mount such an attack, but did say its troops came under fire while on patrol near the Gaza border and fired back, Ynet reported. A helicopter gunship was involved in the retaliation.  

Several hours later, an Israeli soldier was injured by a mortar shell fired from Gaza.
