GAZA CITY (AFP) -- Israeli troops shot and lightly wounded a Palestinian boy in the Gaza Strip Saturday, the health ministry said.

A 16-year-old youth was shot near the separation barrier with Israel in Khan Yunis, ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra said.

The Israeli army said troops had opened fire at a Palestinian who was approaching the separation barrier on foot.

Also on Saturday, a fisherman was shot by Israeli forces near the northern border.

Go to the field and see for yourselves: Palestinian youth regularly play this game of chicken with IDF troops. Getting arrested is a huge status increase. Getting wounded even better.

A good picture.... A steel reinforced concrete watchtower.. Hiding a heavily armed soldier.. With a high powered sniper rifle.. Mounted with the latest scope.. Taking shots at anything that moves.. Shooting and severely wounding a 16 year old teen.. Bone, flesh, nerves, and tendons shredded.. For amusement? Or perhaps to alleviate boredom? Such a sick and perverted society...

Brian-1 is correct about the "game Palestinian youth regularly play", and more over the 17 & 18 year old "youths" are likely to be actual militants, and for your information, hiding among other civilian youths, so as to use them as human-shields is a war crime, and also puts responsibility for the civilian deaths onto the militants !!

Even if Arabs deny themselves a better future, by Resisting for 10,000 years,
ISRAEL WILL CONTINUE TO BOTH ENDURE & PROSPER, and:
- Arab Clashes & riots will be met with Israeli tear-gas & stun-grenades,
- Arab Stone-throwing will be met with Israeli rubber-bullets, and other
- Arab Deadly threats, like planting bombs at the border or launching rockets will be met with deadly Israeli force (bullets, missles, etc.) !!!

Israel must not kill in the holy land. The holy land is the place of god and killing there is as bad as killing in a church, temple or mosque. We are all children of god. Find peace y'all

@kathy-3, are you suggesting that Palestinians are the only ones committing war crimes. If so, you are mistaken
