Gaza, March 14 (Petra - Jordan News Agency) -- A 7-year-old Palestinian died
early Wednesday, succumbing to wounds he sustained during the latest Israeli
aggression against the Gaza Strip.

The child was wounded by Israeli warplanes after targeting a group of
children near a school north of Gaza city.

This brings the total number of Palestinians killed since Friday to 26.

Gaza boy dies after being struck by errant bullet during funeral, relatives
say

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip — A Palestinian boy accidentally struck by a bullet
when militants fired in the air during a funeral died of his injuries
Wednesday, family members and witnesses said.

Palestinian health official Adham Abu Salmia initially said that 8-year-old
Barka al-Mugrahbi died of wounds sustained in an Israeli airstrike on
Monday.

However, Israel’s military said it did not carry out a strike in the area at
the time.

The boy’s relatives and witnesses later said the boy was marching in the
funeral procession for a Gaza militant Monday when he was struck in the head
by an errant bullet.

At the time, gunmen were firing in the air, they said.

On Tuesday, Israel and Gaza militants agreed to a truce after four days of
cross-border fighting, though there have been sporadic violations. Not
counting the boy, 25 Palestinians were killed in the violence.

Rocket and mortar fire from Gaza has persisted, and early Wednesday, Israel
carried out a retaliatory airstrike.
