Israeli soldiers are routinely shooting at Gazans well beyond the unmarked boundary of the official 300 metre-wide no-go area, rights groups say.
30% of the boys injured are under 18.
This has been all along a consistent policy of the zionist entity, targeting young Palestinian men under the false pretext that they are involved in armed groups. However, Israel's army own statistics for the 2000-2003 period, at the height of the second intifada, show that Israel is especially targeting non combatant Palestinian boys between 10 and 34 years of age.
Recently, prominent zionists have been stating this policy of targeting young Palestinian men publicly, calling young Palestinian men ''superfluous''.
