The Israeli military has said a tank fired at three Palestinian children who were killed in Gaza on Tuesday because troops mistook them for militants.
An internal army investigation found soldiers had detected “unidentified movement and opened fire”, ask it added.
The army initially said militants had sent the children to get the launchers.
Both the Israeli military and Palestinian witnesses have said children have been used to retrieve launchers after rockets have been fired.
But army aerial surveillance videos of the incident proved the children were simply playing tag. [source]
