Palestine: Israeli soldiers kill one Palestinian, injure 10 in Gaza

Beit Lahia, Gaza Strip, Khan Younis, (IMEMC News): Israeli soldiers killed, Friday, one Palestinian and injured at least ten others, after the army attacked dozens of Palestinian protesters, in Palestinian lands, near the border fence east of Jabalia, in the northern part of the Gaza Strip.

Medical sources at the Indonesian Hospital, in nearby Beit Lahia city, said the Palestinian, identified as Aa’ed Khamis Jom’a, 35, was shot with a live round in the head.

They added that the soldiers also shot and injured ten other Palestinians with live fire.

Eyewitnesses said that the soldiers, stationed on military towers across the border fence, fired dozens of live rounds and gas bombs at the protesters, who were marching near the border fence, and added that the army also used drones.

It is worth mentioning that the al-Quds Brigades, the armed wing of the Islamic Jihad, issued a statement mourning Jom’a as one of its members. There have been no armed clashes during the Israeli attack, and none of the protesters, including the slain Palestinian, carried weapons.

Furthermore, the soldiers shot one Palestinian with a live round in his leg, after attacking protesters in Palestinian lands, eat of the Sheja’eyya neighborhood, in the eastern part of Gaza city.

The wounded young man was moved to the Shifa Medical Center, west of Gaza city.

Also, the soldiers, stationed in the Nahal Oz military base, across the fence, fired gas bombs into Palestinian lands, causing dozens of residents to suffer the severe effects of teargas inhalation.

Three Palestinians were also shot with live Israeli army fire, east of the al-Boreij refugee camp, in central Gaza, and were moved to the Al-Aqsa hospital, in Deir al-Balah.

Furthermore, the soldiers attacked protesters east of Khan Younis, in the southern part of the besieged coastal region.

Eight Palestinians were killed — including three children — and another 580 injured by Israeli gunfire in the occupied Palestinian territories in May, the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) said in a report issued Thursday.

According to the same report, a total of 34 Palestinians — including nine children and one woman — were killed by Israeli gunfire since the beginning of 2017.
