GAZA, (Alresala.ps)-- A Palestinian child was killed and dozens of protesters wounded afternoon on Friday after the Israeli military violently attacked nonviolent protests on Gaza’s eastern borders.
Head of the emergency department at al-Shifaa Medical Complex, Dr. Ayman al-Sahbani, said 14-year-old Youssef al-Daya was fatally shot by Israeli soldiers.
The Palestinian Health Ministry said at least 41 Palestinians were hit and injured with live ammunition while hundreds of others choked on teargas.
On late Thursday Six Palestinians were injured, including a 16-year-old child sustained critical injuries, as Israeli forces suppressed protesters during night protests, east of Rafah, in the southern besieged Gaza Strip, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza.
The ministry added that the injured Palestinians were transferred to hospitals nearby to receive necessary medical treatment.
Hundreds of Palestinians flocked to the Awda tents pitched east of the blockaded Gaza Strip to take part in the Great March of Return staged along the Gaza border to push for lifting the Israeli siege on the enclave, ceasing Israeli aggressions on Palestinian civilians, and halting assaults on holy sites across the occupied Palestinian territories.
