Israeli troops reportedly fired at the Palestinians after they approached the no-go buffer zone enforced on the Gaza side of the border fence. Twenty-two others were wounded in the incident.
Ahmed Arabawi (19) and Houssam Dola (20) were named as two of the deceased Palestinians according to medical sources inside Gaza.
Around 400 Palestinians demonstrated in the area after the shots were fired, throwing stones and burning tires.
IDF troops also responded to a violent demonstration along Gaza’s southern border with Israel near Khan Younis.
