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
