GAZA (Reuters) - Two Palestinian youths were shot dead by Israeli troops during clashes on Thursday in the Gaza Strip and the Israeli-occupied West Bank, Palestinian medical sources and witnesses said.

A 16-year-old youth was killed and two others wounded in a clash near the Gaza-Israel border fence in which Palestinians threw stones at Israeli troops, one of the wounded youths, medics and witnesses said.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said violent riots had erupted at two locations along the Gaza border and some 50 Palestinians had participated, hurling rocks and rolling burning tyres at troops.

A second Palestinian 16-year-old was killed in rioting at the village of Bureen near the town of Nablus in the central West Bank, the Palestinian health ministry said.
