GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli tank shells killed 4 Palestinians and wounded 30 in the Gaza Strip on Saturday, medics and witnesses said.

Ahmad al-Dardasawi, 18, and Muhammad Hararah, 17, were killed in Gaza City, and two unidentified men later died from injuries sustained in the attack.

At least 26 people were wounded in the shelling, with 10 said to be in a serious condition.

Residents said a crowded mourning tent in the al-Shujaiyeh neighborhood near Gaza City was full of people paying respects to a bereaved family man when a shell struck.

Four people were also wounded in Khan Younis as Israel's army targeted an area east of city, witnesses said.

"The occupation's targeting of civilians was a grave escalation that must not pass in silence," said Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum.

"Resistance must be reinforced in order to block the aggression."

The casualty toll is one of the highest in a single incident in Gaza in recent months.

Israel's army said four soldiers were injured when an "anti-tank missile was fired at an IDF patrol along the security fence in the northern Gaza Strip."

Two soldiers were seriously wounded and two moderately injured, Israeli media said.

Israeli forces targeted several sites in response, the statement added.

The Popular Resistance Committees said it had fired four rockets at communities close to the border and the towns of Sderot and Netivot in southern Israel, in what it called "the revenge invoice" for the deaths in Gaza.

The attacks took place during a period of increased violence along the Israel-Gaza border.



Hamid Younis Abu Daqqa, 13, was killed on Thursday after Israeli forces targeted houses and farms east of Khan Younis, according to Ashraf al-Qidra, a medical spokesman in Gaza.

On Tuesday, three Israeli soldiers were wounded by an explosive device in the southern Gaza Strip, Israel's army said.

A day earlier, Israeli soldiers shot and killed a 20-year-old Palestinian man who approached a fence near Gaza's border with Israel, medics said.

More war crimes from Gaza. Or simply more war from Gaza. Make your mind up, Gazans. Do you want war or peace? What do you think, you can shoot across the border into Israel and nothing will happen? You picked Hamas as your leaders, and they are very clear that they do not want peace. So stop complaining when people die during a war, because war is what you want and war is what you are getting.

Are Palestinians truly mentally challenged? Israel keeps sending messages to you: STOP BOMBING US AND WE SHALL LEAVE YOU ALONE! The Palestinians are not listening. Perhaps more Arabs need to die before Palestinians get courage to demand that Hamas stops bombing Israel.

Please don't be influenced by the israeli media in your way of writing. Please try not to give excuses for israeli terrorist acts by mentioning that the shelling came as a response to some Palestinians acts. Nothing give them the excuse to fire against kids and civilian houses. The shelling is happening because they want to kill us and not as a react for something we did to them. They will always find an excuse to say Palestinian started and we are only defending. so please don't support them

"Israeli soldiers shot and killed a 20 year old Palestinian who approached a fence near Gaza's border with Israel". "Near the border" ? How close are they allowed to go to the fence, or the border? What's the point of a border or fence if people on one side are not allowed "near" it? Who makes these rules anyway? I thought the Israelis keep telling us that they "gave back" Gaza. If Israel's strangling of Gaza stopped, so would the rockets. It's not rocket science.

If I was PM Netanyahu, I would welcome every rocket fired into Israel. I would hit back hard, ideally killing children like 13-year-old soccer nut, Hamid Younis Abu Daqqa. And if there was a lull, I would send in tanks, kill more Gazans, and keep the rockets coming. Then I would campaign on the platform that Arabs are violent and irrational, that Israel is in grave danger, that Abu Mazen's reasonableness(about not wanting to live in Safed) is an illusion and what he REALLY wants is ALL Israel,

(contd.) that Obama can't be trusted (and as a secret muslim is no friend to Israel)...and that in such violent and volatile times, what's needed is tough hardliners, like Likud/Yisrael Beitenu to lead. That's what I would do. And that's what he's doing.

Those who criticise President Abbas might want to compare his strategy of securing Palestinian lands by legal and diplomatic means to that of Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum: "The occupation's targeting of civilians...must not pass in silence" and "Resistance must be reinforced in order to block the aggression." Lunatics like Fawzi Barhoum are Israel's "useful idiots", playing into Bibi's hands and achieving nothing except the deaths of innocent people like 13-year-old Hamid Younis Abu Daqqa.
