Three Palestinian minors were killed during an Israeli airstrike northeast of Khan Younis, in the southern besieged Gaza Strip, on Sunday.
AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): Three Palestinian minors were killed during an Israeli airstrike northeast of Khan Younis, in the southern besieged Gaza Strip, on Sunday.
The Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza confirmed that three minors were killed after a group of Palestinians were targeted by an Israeli warplane, near the security border fence with Israel northeast of Khan Younis City.
The ministry identified the killed minors as Khalid Bassam Said, 13, Abdullah al-Hamid Abu Daher, 13, and Muhammad Ibrahim al-Satra, 13.
The Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) reported that its ambulances were prevented from reaching the area where the minors were located for about two hours.
PRCS added that its crews later pulled out the bodies of the three minors and transferred them to a nearby hospital, where they were declared dead.
The killing of the Palestinian minors comes less than 24 hours after Israel and the Islamic Jihad movement in Gaza declared a ceasefire after violence escalated near the border.
The World Health Organization (WHO) issued a special situation report, which showed that 14 Palestinians, including four children, were killed and 1,434 were injured by the Israeli forces in the past two weeks in Gaza.
