Palestinian sources reported on Friday morning that two children, aged 8 and 10, were killed by an Israeli tank shell fired at their house in the Al-Qarara area, east of the Khan Yunis refugee camp in the Gaza Strip.
The Israeli army said the children were killed when explosive devices planted in the area by Palestinians went off.
Two Israeli soldiers were injured, one moderately and one lightly, early Friday morning from an explosive charge that detonated as they were operating near Egypt-Israel border in the southern Gaza Strip.
