Two Palestinian teenagers were shot and killed by Israeli soldiers on Thursday as violence continues in the occupied territories, Al Jazeera reports.

A Palestinian teen from the Gaza Strip was killed east of the Burij refugee camp after a live round was fired into his chest, the Wafa news agency quotedmedical sources as saying.

Three other Palestinians were wounded, one critically, it said.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said "violent riots" involving rock-throwing youth erupted at two locations along the Gaza border, and some 50 Palestinians were involved. Soldiers opened fire because the Palestinians "posed a threat".
