Israeli soldiers kill more Palestinians in Gaza

Israeli soldiers kill more Palestinians in Gaza

There seems to be no cut to the streak of young Palestinians being killed by Israeli soldiers at the fence area separating the besieged Gaza Strip form the occupied territories.

Ashraf al-Qidra, spokesman for the Gaza Health Ministry, said three Palestinians were killed on Friday east of Khan Yunis in southern Gaza, identifying them as Nassar Eyad Abu Taim, 19, Ahmed Saied Abu Labda, 22, and 23-year-old Ayesh Ghassan Shaat.

He said Israeli soldiers also killed Muhammad Khaled Mahmoud Abdul Nabi, 27, east of Jabalia, about four kilometers north of Gaza City.

Jabr Ibrahim Abu Hamisa, 25, was also killed in an incident east of al-Bureij refugee camp in central Gaza. The cause of the deadly event was not clear, Presstv reported.

Tensions have been running high near the border fence since March 30, which marked the start of a series of protests dubbed “The Great March of Return.” Palestinian protesters demand the right to return for those driven out of their homeland.

The clashes in Gaza reached their peak on May 14, the eve of the 70th anniversary of Nakba Day, or the Day of Catastrophe, which coincided this year with Washington's relocation of the US embassy from Tel Aviv to occupied Jerusalem al-Quds.

More than 190 Palestinians have so far been killed and over 20,000 others wounded in the renewed Gaza clashes, according to the latest figures released by the Gaza Health Ministry.

Gaza has been under Israeli siege since June 2007, causing a decline in living standards as well as unprecedented unemployment and poverty.

Israel has also launched several wars on the Palestinian sliver, the last of which began in early July 2014 and ended in late August the same year. The Israeli military aggression killed nearly 2,200 Palestinians and injured over 11,100 others.

Palestinian man killed in Ramallah

In the West Bank city of Ramallah, clashes were reported between the Palestinians and Israeli forces.

The clashes in the village of al-Mazra'a in Ramallah left a Palestinian man killed and an unspecified number of people wounded, sources said.
