Israeli troops in the occupied Gaza Strip shot dead a three-year-old Arab child and wounded two other children today in widespread unrest marking 11 months of a Palestinian uprising, staff at Gaza City’s Shifa Hospital said.

Palestinian sources named the dead boy as Ussama Ahmed Abu Ghanimeh. They said he was killed and two other children, aged 12 and 13, were wounded when soldiers fired at children and young men who threw stones at an army patrol in the city’s Shaja’iyeh district. The army said it was checking the report.
