Three days ago, Palestinian sources reported that a 10 year-old boy was killed by IDF fire during an army operation in central Gaza. The sources identified the dead child as Tamer Abu Sha'ar.


According to the sources, several other people were wounded after soldiers opened fire at Palestinians in the Khan Younis area. Earlier, medics said that the boy underwent surgery and that his condition was critical. The boy later succumbed to his wounds, the Palestinians said.


A military spokeswoman said there had been no notification from Palestinian officials of any child casualties and she was also not aware that troops had occupied any building.


Meanwhile, the Qassam attacks on Israel's south continue. Home Front Command officials said this week that some 400 rockets have landed in the western Negev region since the beginning of 2008.
