Two Palestinians were wounded on Monday by Israeli shellfire in the northern Gaza Strip near the border with Israel, Palestinian medical sources said.

"Two young Palestinians were injured by Israeli fire in the northwest of Beit Lahiya, in the north of the Gaza Strip," health services spokesman Adham Abu Selmiya told AFP.
A hospital source said the two were both "moderately" wounded.

The Israeli military had no immediate comment on the reports.

On Saturday, two Palestinians were killed during Israeli air raids on central Gaza near the border.

One Israeli soldier was wounded in the incident by friendly fire, the military said.

The area along Gaza's border with Israel has been declared a no-go zone by the Israeli military, which often fires on Palestinians who venture into the area.
