The Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories Spokesman announces that earlier today (Tuesday), 13.3.12, a 15-year-old boy was taken to hospital in Israel after he was injured yesterday morning in the Jabalya, in the Gaza Strip. He was taken to Kaplan Medical Center in Rehovot.

The evacuation took place after contacts between the Coordination and Liaison Administration at Erez Crossing and Health Ministry representatives.
The boy’s injury is related to the death of another boy of 15 who initially claimed that he was wounded by IDF forces.  However, this claim was denied yesterday by the IDF spokesman who noted that the IDF was not operating in this area.
