Palestinians await funeral of teenager killed in Israel
Palestinians are preparing to hold the funeral of a teenager abducted and murdered in Israel.
The killing of 17-year-old Mohammed Abu Khdair on Wednesday was condemned by both Israeli and Palestinian leaders.
The murder sparked fierce clashes amid claims it was in revenge for the killing of three Israeli youths.
Meanwhile Palestinian militants in Gaza fired several rockets at Israel. Israel responded with a series of air strikes on the territory early on Thursday.
Israeli officials said 20 mortars and rockets were fired.
"The Israeli Air Force attacked 15 terror sites in Gaza early Thursday morning," an Israel Defence Forces official said.
"The targets included weapons manufacturing sites as well as training facilities," the official added.
Ashraf Al Qidra, from Gaza's Ministry of Health, told the BBC that 10 Palestinians were injured in the air strike and taken to hospital.
