Palestinians: Child killed in Gaza shootout between Israel and Hamas

A 10-year-old boy was killed and two other minors were wounded Tuesday in an exchange of fire between Hamas gunmen and IDF troops in the central Gaza town of Deir el-Balah, Palestinian medics said. Palestinian security officials said army forces operating in the town came under heavy fire from Hamas. The troops shot back and the children were apparently caught in the crossfire, the officials said. The army had no immediate comment.
