    Two young Palestinian activists were shot dead late on Saturday at a crossing point between the eastern Gaza Strip and Israel, said an Israeli military spokesman. He claimed that the pair had been carrying explosives.
      
    Ashraf Abd al-Salam al-Hayya, 19 and Abd al-Karim Sukkar, 18, were both members of the Hamas resistance group, said Palestinian sources.  
      
    Their bodies were recovered by a Palestinian medical team close to the Nahal-Oz crossing point and taken to the al-Shifa hospital in Gaza City.

    A third teenager was shot dead by Israeli soldiers in Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip, said relatives and Palestinian security sources.   

    Jihad Musa al-Akhras, 16, was sprayed with gunfire by Israeli troops after he approached the fence snaking along the Gaza Strip and Egyptian border, they said.
