Israeli forces shooting into Jabaliya refugee camp in northern Gaza have wounded two young Palestinians. A spokesman for the Ministry of Health said that the two were taken to Kamal Odwan Hospital where they were treated for light injuries.

Witnesses said that a number of young people were playing in an open area not far from the border and were surprised when the Israelis started shooting at them. They called for an ambulance, which evacuated the casualties from the area.

This is yet another Israeli breach of the truce reached with the Palestinians to bring the offensive against Gaza to an end last November.
