Palestinian security sources in Gaza said Friday that Israeli army aircraft attacked with missiles six military lookout posts and facilities located in eastern Gaza Strip, not far from the border with Israel.

The Gaza-based Palestinian Center for Human Rights said its investigations concluded the three approached the area Sunday evening "in an attempt to sneak through the border fence".

The boys' bodies were wrapped in Palestinian flags and carried by mourners who shot in the air as they chanted "God is Great".

Aisha Abu Daher said her 14-year-old son Abdel-Hamid had "nothing to do with resistance", referring to the militant factions.

U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres "deplores" the deaths of the three Palestinian children, a spokesman said. Moreover, remarkably, a plurality of Palestinians in Gaza say they want Hamas to change its rejectionist position and agree to make peace with Israel. I told them to be careful.

"The object was collected by security officers and handled by them", an Eshkol spokesperson said.

The launching of such devices, often kites and balloons affixed with flammable liquids or explosives, has become a ubiquitous tactic used by Gaza protesters to inflict costly damage on the State of Israel without putting themselves in danger.

"It's normal for them to go there, and that's why we did not expect them to be martyred", said Salwa Abu Isied, Khaled's mother. "These are small children", he said.

Euro-Med described the continued use of excessive force by Israeli forces against Palestinian protesters at the Israel-Gaza fence as "deeply shocking", adding that in the 200 days of protests, Gaza lost 205 residents.

Israel justifies its blockade by the need to contain Hamas and accused the islamist movement that runs the enclave of orchestrating the protests for "terrorists".

DCIP stated that the three children are among six children killed by Israeli forces in the occupied Gaza Strip this month alone, "and at least 50 children killed by Israeli forces or settlers across the Occupied Palestinian Territory this year".
