Boys shot at Gaza beach

Watch Al Jazeera's report on the shootings

Two 13-year-old boys were shot dead, and another boy shot in the back, by Israeli forces after they took a swim near a beach in Beit Lahiya on Friday.

The boys, from Jabaliya's refugee camp in the northern Gaza Strip, planned to visit the beach near Beit Lahiya to fly kites.

 

Israeli soldiers took the boy who was shot in the back for treatment inside Israel.

 

They dropped him back to northern Gaza, where Palestinian paramedics picked him up.

 

The summer vacation period has begun for schoolchildren in Gaza. With limited recreational choices, the beach near Beit Lahiya has become a destination of choice for children in the Jabaliya refugee camp.
