The sound of a blast cut through the air on Gaza's beach, drawing people out of seafront buildings to see a crowd of terrified children sprinting along the sand.They screamed as they ran, smoke rising behind them from an Israeli strike.A hut used by Palestinian fishermen was set ablaze by the strike.It was unclear if Wednesday's strikes were the result of naval shelling, which frequently hits the Gaza coastline, or from warplanes.Several hours after the strikes, the Israeli military in a statement described the deaths as "tragic" and said it was investigating the incident.The bodies of the children were later taken to Abu Hasira Mosque, near where the boys had died.
