Gaza - Ma'an - Israeli forces shot and killed a Palestinian teenager in the northern Gaza Strip on Friday night.

A medical crew succeeded in retrieving the body of the 18-year-old and transferring it to Kamal Udwan Hospital in northern Gaza.

Mu'awya Hassanain, the director of ambulance and emergency services in the Palestinian Health Ministry said that the body had been shot dozens of times. Health Ministry officials are still waiting for Palestinians to come forward and identify the victim.

Separately, Israeli forces shot a 23-year-old farmer in the town of Khuza'a, in the southern Gaza Strip, near the Israeli border wall. The victim was a member of the Qudeh family.

The Israeli military recently enlarged the "Buffer Zone" inside the Strip along the border with Israel. Palestinian are now forbidden from approaching within 800 meters of the border. Israeli soldiers shoot at Palestinians, including farmers tending their land, who enter the border zone.

Israeli forces were also reported to have arrested several Palestinians in Khuza'a on Saturday.
