GAZA, July 14 (Xinhua) -- A Palestinian boy was wounded by Israeli gunfire on Wednesday in northern Gaza Strip, a Palestinian emergency officer said.

The 13-year-old boy was with a group of workers collecting stones in an open area watched by Israeli forces manning security fence separating between Gaza and Israel in Beit Hanoun town in northern Gaza, said Mu'awia Hassanein, director of ambulance.

The boy was moderately injured, Hassanein added.

Many young people go to look for gravel in areas close to the Israeli borders. Israel restricts the shipment of construction materials, including gravel into Gaza.

On Tuesday night, a Palestinian woman was killed and four others wounded in an Israeli shelling in central Gaza Strip.

In the West Bank, the Israeli army arrested 11 Palestinians during raids in the night and early in the morning, Israel Radio reported, adding that the army detained suspect people wanted by the Israeli military.
