Israel shells Hamas observation posts in Gaza Strip

Two Palestinian teenagers shot dead by Israeli army

Israeli forces shot and killed two Palestinian teenagers during protests along the Gaza-Israel border, Friday, September 6, Palestinian health officials said.

"Hamas is responsible for all aggression emanating from the Gaza Strip".

Hours later, Palestinian armed fighters fired five rockets at southern Israel, hitting open fields, and Israel attacked Hamas positions in response, according to the army.

Tensions between the Israelis and the Palestinians near the Gaza border have been mounting for months.

An Egyptian delegation meanwhile arrived in the Gaza Strip Sunday as part of efforts to keep alive a fragile truce between Hamas and Israel, a Hamas source said.

Sunday at dawn, IAF warplanes launched several raids on Hamas positions across the Gaza Strip, causing extensive damage, but no injuries.

"Any attempt to harm our soldiers or civilians has been and will be met with a harsh response".

Two Palestinians, including a teenager, were killed on Friday by Israeli gunfire during protests along the Israel-Gaza perimeter fence, the Gaza Strip's health authorities said.

The rioters threw "a large amount of explosive devices, grenades and firebombs" and damaged parts of the border fence.

Since the outbreak of protests on the Gaza border a year ago, Israel has intermittently taken a number of steps to stem outbreaks of violence from the coastal territory, such as closing border crossings, cutting fuel shipments, and reducing the permitted fishing area off the coast of the Strip.

Israel has also launched three major wars against the enclave since 2008, killing thousands of Gazans each time and shattering the impoverished territory's already poor infrastructure.

Palestinians have been holding regular mass protests along the fortified border since March 2018.

The Israeli army said it used "riot dispersal means".

Protesters have staged 18 months of weekly demonstrations dubbed the "Great March of Return", calling for an end to a security blockade imposed on Gaza by Israel and Egypt, and 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.
