Israel’s army said it had launched airstrikes on the besieged Gaza Strip early on Saturday, following Israeli violence at the Gaza fence that saw a Palestinian teenager shot dead and many injured.

The health ministry in the besieged enclave said that 220 Palestinians were injured in Friday’s protests on the Gaza border in addition to 15-year-old Othman Rami Halles who was shot dead.

A Palestinian child was killed today and another 43 people were wounded, during a protest in Gaza, according to the Palestinian Health Ministry in the besieged Gaza Strip.

Palestinians in Gaza have been demonstrating against Israel’s decade-long blockade of the territory and in support of their right to return to lands they fled or were driven from during the war surrounding the creation of Israel in 1948.

Since the protests began on March 30, they have been violently quashed by the Israeli army. Nearly 140 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire.

The majority of those killed were non-violent protesters, as well as journalists, bystanders, and a nurse, however, a small number were seeking to breach or damage the border fence.

No Israelis have been killed.

  1. I see & feel your anguish Palestine people. All I can do is daily pray for you.
    In the long slow recovery of healing a smashed heel & femur bone and loss of blood: as a result of my 6m fall from a ladder… these words I will share with you: “May you rest assured that God has used all of your past experiences to prepare for this particular season of life. You’re not who you once were. You’re stronger than you know. You’ll have what you need in the days ahead. Jesus has your back and he has gone before you. Don’t spend too much time pondering on the pain of the past. You are still standing. The devil didn’t win.” GOD BLESS YOU IN YOUR QUEST 4 FREEDOM FROM ISRAEL OPPRESSION.
