Israeli occupation forces murdered on Saturday night three Palestinian youths east of the northern Gaza city of Beit Lahiya, claiming they attempted to cross Gaza’s eastern fence into Israel.
Palestinian Red Crescent (PRC) reported that its staff could collect the bodies of the three martyrs on Sunday morning.
The Palestinian ministry of health named the three martyrs as Mahmoud al-Walaydeh, 24, Mohamed abu-Namous, 27, and Mohammed al-Taramsi, 26.
Murdering the three youths in Gaza came just two days of liquidating two Palestinian childrenin Jerusalem’s Old City over claims of attempting to stab an Israeli policeman.
Israeli politicians have been calling for the Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu to carry out a massive offensive in Gaza to oust the freely-elected Palestinian movement Hamas and help reinstate the secular movement Fatah like what happened in the occupied West Bank.
The Gaza Strip, a narrow coastal enclave, has been under a ground, sea and air Israeli siege, backed by the US, some EU and some Arab states, since 2007.
Poverty and unemployment rates have registered records, the World Bank has said, compared to the poorest countries in the world.
