GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The bodies of two Palestinian teenagers killed by Israeli airstrikes in the southern Gaza Strip were found early on Sunday morning.

Spokesperson of the Gaza Ministry of Health, Ashraf al-Qidra, said that the bodies of the two youths arrived on Sunday to the Abu Youssef al-Najjar Hospital in Rafah City in southern Gaza.

Al-Qidra identified them as Bassam Muhammad Sabbah, 17, and Abdullah Ayman Abu Sheikha, 17, both from the al-Salam neighborhood in the city. The two were killed on Saturday night in airstrikes that, according to locals, lasted for hours.

Another two injured Palestinians also arrived to the same hospital on Saturday night.

The past few days have seen increased tensions along the Israeli-Gaza border, with Israel conducting several airstrikes throughout the besieged territory.

Israel has said that the deadly airstrikes were “retaliatory,” and were in response to rocket fire coming from the enclave and the injury of four Israeli soldiers on Saturday after a device that detonated along the border.
