Palestinians carry the body of six-year-old Ali Al-Shwaf during his funeral in Khan Younis, in the southern Gaza Strip

Palestinians carry the body of six-year-old Ali Al-Shwaf during his funeral in Khan Younis, in the southern Gaza Strip June 23, 2012. Hamas medical officials said a six-year-old Palestinian boy had been killed in an air strike and that a baby had been hurt in a separate raid near the Egyptian border. Israel denied involvement in hurting either of the children. Lieutenant Colonel Avital Leibovich, an Israeli military spokeswoman, said on Twitter that the report of Israeli responsibility in the death of the six-year-old was the result of “false rumours” and that the boy had died due to an explosion of ordnance belonging to Palestinian militants. Another Israeli military spokeswoman said she had no report of any air strikes in Rafah, where the baby was reported to have been hurt. REUTERS/Ibraheem Abu Mustafa
