Palestinians bury 14-year-old killed during Gaza protest

The boy was identified as Hassan Shalabi by Gaza's health ministry. Israel's military said it had opened fire in response to explosives and rocks hurled at the border fence. Gaza health officials said an 18-year-old was also shot dead during the protests.

Palestinians have been staging weekly protests since last March at the fence separating the Gaza Strip from the Israeli-occupied territories. The enclave's health ministry says more than 220 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli troops during the protests.
