Israel bombs kill 3 Palestinians in besieged Gaza tunnels

The bodies of a 14-year-old boy and another Palestinian, Israeli air strikes killed, were recovered on Friday from a tunnel in the southern Gaza Strip, Palestinian witnesses and medical workers said.

It brought to three the number of Palestinians killed in air strikes Israel launched on Thursday against the enclave.

Palestinians said they recovered two bodies from a tunnel bombed by Israel, including the 14-year-old boy. A third man was found dead at the site on Thursday.

The air strikes targeted Gaza City, Khan Younis and Rafah, which is on the Egyptian border.

Israel and Egypt imposes siege into the occupied land home to 1.5 million people since June 2007. Tunnels are the only links Palestine has to the outside world because
of the Israeli blockade.

Israel controls all but one of Gaza's border crossings, the Rafah terminal with Egypt.

1.5 million Gazans still live under heavy Israel siege and Egypt still insists on not to opening the only Gaza border crossing in a move condemned around the world in protests, leaving Gazans desperate to digging tunnels underground and risking their lives since 2007.

A group of international lawyers and human rights activists had also accused Israel of committing "genocide" through its crippling blockade of the Strip.
