2 Palestinian teens killed in Gaza clashes as IDF praises courageous soldiers & border fence (VIDEOS) Two youths, aged 14 and 18, have been killed by IDF fire during the latest March of Return protests along the Gaza border with Israel, the 46th week of Palestinian civil disobedience there.

Israel blames Gaza's Hamas rulers for orchestrating regular Friday demonstrations known as the "Great March of Return" now in their 46th week in a row.

Israeli troops "responded with riot dispersal means and fired according to standard operating procedures", the spokesperson added.

Earlier this week, Israel began reinforcing its Gaza security fence with a galvanized steel barrier 65 kilometers long (40 miles) and six meters high (20 feet).

Demonstrators demand the right of Palestinian refugees to return to their homes in historical Palestine from which they were driven in 1948 to make way for the new state of Israel. The degree of violence on several occasions escalated into cross-border exchanges between Hamas and Israeli forces.

The militant Hamas group demands an end to the Israeli-Egyptian blockade imposed on the territory since 2007.
