Palestinian teen killed at hands of invading IOF troops in central Gaza
A 17-year-old Palestinian was killed at the hands of IOF invading troops east of Breij refugee camp in central Gaza at an early hour on Sunday, medical sources announced.
They told the PIC correspondent that Ziad Abu Rukba, a resident of Nusseirat refugee camp, was hit with a bullet in the chest that killed him instantly.
The sources said that other casualties were carried to the Shuhada Al-Aqsa hospital in the central Gaza district following the IOF incursion.
Members of the Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas Movement, are engaging the invasion troops with all available weapons.
The armed wing said in a communiqué that its fighters fired four anti-armored projectiles at an IOF foot patrol in the area, and affirmed that casualties were inflicted.
