GAZA, (PIC)– Palestinian medical teams on Thursday retrieved the bodies of two Palestinians who were killed at the hands of the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) east of Jabalia refugee camp to the north of the Gaza Strip.
Adham Abu Salmiya, the spokesman for the medical services, told the PIC that the medical teams managed to evacuate the bodies after many attempts that started in the early morning hours, adding that they were killed Wednesday night.
He said that the bodies were carried to hospital but could not be identified yet.
IOF command earlier said that its soldiers fired at two Palestinians for approaching the security fence surrounding the Strip, claiming that they were trying to plant an explosive device.
A Hebrew website, for its part, said that one of them was killed and the other injured in the shooting.
