The IAF fired missiles in northern Gaza on Tuesday, killing a 14-year-old boy and a 24-year old woman, Palestinian officials said. The woman was identified as Mirvat Al Sharkh, a medic. Three people were wounded. The strike occurred near the town of Beit Hanun, the officials. The IDF reported that the 14-year-old boy was involved in the launching of Kassam rockets into Israel. On Monday, a 17-year-old Palestinian youth was killed by shrapnel from an IDF artillery shell fired near his house in Beit Hanun. The IDF said artillery was fired at militants launching rockets toward Israel. Palestinians also reported that 10 others were wounded.
