A 27-year-old Palestinian was shot and killed by Israeli forces, while dozens of others suffered from tear-gas inhalation, on Monday, during the 14th naval march at the northern borders of the besieged Gaza Strip.

A Ma’an reporter confirmed that Muhammad Abed Abu Ubada, 27, was killed by Israeli forces during the 14th naval march, which set off from the Gaza seaport, in protest against the nearly 12-year Israeli siege.

According to local reports, Abu Ubada was transferred to the al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza City, where he was declared dead.

During the naval march, Palestinian protesters ignited tires to blur the vision of Israeli snipers deployed at the northern Gaza border, while Israeli forces repeatedly fired live bullets, rubber-coated steel bullets, and tear-gas bombs towards the protesters.

As a result, dozens of protesters suffered from tear-gas inhalation.

Many attempts have been made throughout the years to draw the public’s attention to and break the on-going siege of the Gaza Strip whether via ships attempting to sail into Gaza or ships attempting to sail from Gaza.
