Israeli soldiers killed, Friday, one Palestinian and injured at least ten others, after the army attacked dozens of Palestinian protesters, in Palestinian lands, near the border fence east of Jabalia, in the northern part of the Gaza Strip.
Medical sources at the Indonesian Hospital, in nearby Beit Lahia city, said the Palestinian, identified as Aa’ed Khamis Jom’a, 35, was shot with a live round in the head.
They added that the soldiers also shot and injured ten other Palestinians with live fire.
Eyewitnesses said that the soldiers, stationed on military towers across the border fence, fired dozens of live rounds and gas bombs at the protesters, who were marching near the border fence, and added that the army also used drones.

Furthermore, the soldiers shot one Palestinian with a live round in his leg, after attacking protesters in Palestinian lands, eat of the Sheja’eyya neighborhood, in the eastern part of Gaza city.
The wounded young man was moved to the Shifa Medical Center, west of Gaza city.
Also, the soldiers, stationed in the Nahal Oz military base, across the fence, fired gas bombs into Palestinian lands, causing dozens of residents to suffer the severe effects of teargas inhalation.
Three Palestinians were also shot with live Israeli army fire, east of the al-Boreij refugee camp, in central Gaza, and were moved to the Al-Aqsa hospital, in Deir al-Balah.
