Gaza’s health authorities said Ali al-Ashqar, 17, and Khaled al-Ribie,14, were shot in the chest by Israeli police while thousands of Palestinians held protests at several sections of the fence.
Ashraf al-Qidra, a spokesman for the Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza, told Al Jazeera that 76 people were also wounded by Israeli fire, 45 of whom were targeted.
“Most of the victims suffered upper-body wounds which shows an intent to kill,” he said.
