Run pipes behind boiler

Hi, I have an old traditional gas boiler (two pipe, fully pumped system, if that matters) sitting on the floor and touching the wall, as from the first pic. The second pic zooms in on a hole the boiler has in the rear, leaving a gap with the wall.
I am planning to run two 15mm copper pipes through that gap to bring water to radiators I am adding to the house.

Would that be ok? Is there any safety/practical consideration I should keep in mind? Thanks

    If there is room for the pipe that would be ok, but I would avoid it and run over the top of the boiler up high.

    The only reason would be to make replacement easier someday

    Thanks! And sorry for the delay, I wasn't notified of your reply.
