Curiosity and Anger Draw Gaza Children to Their Deaths

Two teenage boys are the latest to be killed in the Israeli incursion into the Jabaliya refugee camp. One moment, Suleyman abu Foul was at the breakfast table, asking his mother for food. The next, the 15-year-old Palestinian had slipped out unnoticed into a neighborhood torn by more than a week of combat. A short time later Thursday, the grim news came: Suleyman and his 14-year-old nephew had been killed by Israeli fire. “I asked where he was and [the other children] said, ‘I don’t know,’ ” Suleyman’s mother, Galia, said a few hours after. “Then they came and told me he was killed. I didn’t believe it.” The boys were the latest youths to die in the Israeli campaign in and around this impoverished camp. More than 20 minors have died and dozens have been wounded, Palestinian hospital officials and human rights groups say. Group Profile
