Gaza51GAZA (PNIC):-The Palestinian 17-year-old minor Abdul Fatah Abu Azoum was laid to rest in his hometown, east of Rafah, after succumbing to his wounds on Thursday as he was hit by Israeli tank shell fired toward eastern Rafah, to the south of the blockaded Gaza Strip.

Hundreds of mourners crowded outside Abu Azoum’s home, as relatives and friends bid him a final farewell. Mourners then carried the body to the town's main mosque for a funeral prayer, before marching to the town's cemetery where he was buried.

Earlier Thursday, Israeli army fired a tank shell at two Palestinians when they approached the border fence hitting the two, who were rushed to Abu Youssef al-Najar hospital. One of them was pronounced dead shortly afterwards.
