GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Medical authorities on Wednesday identified a man found dead after Israeli forces fired near the Gaza Strip border as a teenager from Gaza City.
Gaza medical official Adham Abu Salmiya said the body found earlier Wednesday was Hisham Misbah Saad, 17, from the city's Shujaiyeh neighborhood.
Medics coordinated with the Red Crescent to remove his body from an area near the eastern cemetery hard for Palestinians to reach. He was transferred to Kamal Odwan hospital in northern Gaza, Abu Salmiya said.
An Israeli military spokeswoman confirmed that forces on the border late Tuesday fired toward a "suspect crawling toward the security fence" in the northern Gaza Strip.
She said explosive devices were found on the border last week.
The shooting occurred hours after Israel returned the body of Bilal Yousef al-Saayed, who was killed Saturday under similar circumstances, medics said.
Palestinian medics received al-Saayed's body at the Erez crossing. The International Committee of the Red Cross coordinated the transfer of the body.
A forensic examination revealed al-Saayed was shot in the upper part of his body. He had suffered injuries to his face, neck and chest, Abu Salmiya said. The body was returned to al-Saayed's family.
Israeli forces took al-Saayed's remains on Sunday after shooting him after dark Saturday in Gaza near the border with Israel, the military said in a statement. more
JENIN, (pic)-- Hunger strikers' families, in Jenin, stated that the occupation bears full responsibility for the strikers' lives, appealing to all human rights and humanitarian organizations to stand with them, and asking for an immediate international intervention to release and protect them.
Bilal Diab has been in administrative detention without charge, and there is nothing to justify his detention especially that his health condition is very critical, the prisoner's brother said during a solidarity protest in front of the Red Cross in Jenin on Wednesday.
For her part, the mother of Mohamed Tej, who has been in hunger strike for 22 days running, called the international institutions for the enforcement of Geneva Conventions for prisoners, especially the third and the fourth and to pressure the occupation to apply them. more
