Israeli fire killed two Palestinian boys and wounded two of their cousins on Wednesday as they played in a field in the northern Gaza Strip at the tail end of their summer holidays.
Yahya Ramadan Ghazal, 12, and his cousin Mahmud Mussa Ghazal, 10, were killed when Israeli artillery fire from across the border slammed into a field east of Jabaliya refugee camp, witnesses and a medical official said.
"We identified and fired at several rocket launchers aimed at Israel in the Beit Hanun industrial zone," an Israeli army spokeswoman said.
"We also identified several suspicious looking people fiddling with the rocket launchers before we fired. The army regrets terror organisations' cynical use of children," she added.
