According to CNN, the Palestinian Ministry of Health and the Palestinian news agency WAFA said Salem Sabah and Abdallah Abu Sheikha, both 17 years old, were killed on Saturday night when the Israeli military carried out a series of air and tank strikes across Gaza. The Israel Defence Forces said the strikes hit 18 Hamas targets, including what the Israeli military called an “offensive terror tunnel” in Zaytun in southern Gaza. “The Hamas terror organization is accountable for this incident and its consequences, as well as everything happening in and from the Gaza Strip, above and below ground,” the Israeli military said in a statement after the strikes.
