GAZA CITY, Palestine (AA): Five Palestinians including a young Palestinian protester were killed by Israeli army Saturday.

Ziyad Akl, 23, was seriously wounded by Israeli gunfire during protests Friday in the Gaza-Israel buffer zone, Ashraf al-Qidra, a spokesman for the Gaza-based Palestinian Ministry of Health, said in a press release.

Five protesters were killed and 180 others injured, including 35 minors and four paramedics on Friday al-Qidra said

The Israeli army said roughly 16,000 Palestinians took part in the protests.

Hundreds of Palestinians had converged along the zone as part of ongoing demonstrations against Israel’s decades-long occupation

The soldiers also shot eight paramedics while providing the needed medical aid to wounded Palestinians in protest areas, in addition to 51 children, eight women in the eastern parts of the coastal region.

On Friday evening, the soldiers invaded the al-Mazra’a al-Gharbiyya village, northwest of the central West Bank city of Ramallah, killed one Palestinian, identified as Othman Ahmad Ladadweh, 33, and injured dozens, including eight who were shot with live fire, while the soldiers also assaulted journalists, and shot one.

More than 200 Palestinians have been killed and thousands more injured by Israeli troops deployed near the buffer zone since such rallies began on March 30.
