2 Palestinians shot, killed by Israeli forces during Gaza demos


Two Palestinians were killed and at least 100 others injured as Israeli forces opened fire at demonstrators in the Gaza Strip on Friday, medical sources said.

Ashraf al-Qidra, Gaza's Ministry of Health spokesperson, said that Yahiya Abd al-Qader Farhat, 24, was killed after being shot in the head by Israeli soldiers in northern Gaza.

He was taken to the al-Awda hospital in Jabalia, where he was pronounced dead. Farhat was from the Gaza neighborhood of al-Shujaiyeh.

Mahmoud Hatim Hmeid, 22, was identified as the second victim. He was killed east of the al-Shujaiyeh neighborhood in northern Gaza.

At least 11 Palestinians were shot with live fire while dozens suffered tear gas inhalation and were shot with rubber-coated steel bullets during the demonstrations, al-Qidra added.

Clashes also broke out east of the al-Bureij refugee camp in central Gaza, with Israeli forces firing tear gas at demonstrators, who set fire to tires. more
