JERUSALEM (CNN) -- A 17-year-old girl was killed and another person was injured on Thursday by Israeli tank fire at the El Marej refugee camp east of Gaza City, hospital sources said.
Israel Defense Forces responded to the report by saying a tank fired across the border in retaliation to mortars fired at an Israeli border patrol.
This comes on the same day as Amnesty International issued a scathing report about Israeli and Palestinian actions during Israel's fierce winter offensive in Gaza, undertaken after months of rocket attacks by Palestinian militants into Israel.
The report said Israeli troops killed hundreds of unarmed civilian adults and children, broke laws and committed war crimes. source
