    Dr. Ashraf al-Qedra, the spokesperson of the Health Ministry in Gaza, has confirmed that Israeli soldiers killed, Friday, two Palestinians, including a child, and injured 415 others, including 11 children, two women and three medics, in the “Great Return March” processions along the eastern parts of the Gaza Strip.

    He added that the soldiers killed a child, identified as Yasser Amjad Abu Naja , 14, east of Khan Younis, also in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.

    The official also said that the soldiers injured more than 415 Palestinians, including 136 who were moved to hospitals for further treatment, and 279 who received treatment in field clinics.

    Friday’s protest, part of ongoing processions for the fourteenth consecutive week, was dubbed “From Gaza to the West Bank, one fate, one blood,” expressing rejection to any attempt to isolate the Gaza Strip, and consider it a separate entity from the rest of occupied Palestine.

Au moins 137 Palestiniens ont été tués par des tirs israéliens depuis le début de la mobilisation contre le blocus israélien et pour le droit au retour des Palestiniens sur les terres dont ils ont été chassés ou qu’ils ont fuies à la création d’Israël.

      Deux Palestiniens, dont un adolescent, ont été tués vendredi par des tirs de soldats israéliens lors d’affrontements près de la frontière séparant Israël de la bande de Gaza, a annoncé le ministère de la Santé local. L’adolescent, dont l’identité n’a pas été révélée, a été tué d’une balle dans la tête près de la localité de Khan Younès, dans le sud de l’enclave, selon Achraf al-Qodra, porte-parole du ministère palestinien de la Santé à Gaza.

      Le deuxième Palestinien, Mohammed al-Hamayda, 24 ans, a été tué d’une balle dans le ventre, à l’est de Rafah, également dans le sud de la bande côtière sous blocus israélien, a ajouté le porte-parole.

      L’armée israélienne a indiqué dans un communiqué que des «  milliers de Palestiniens ont participé au cours de l’après-midi à des violentes manifestations et se sont livrés à de nombreux actes de terrorisme le long de la barrière de sécurité  », séparant Israël de l’enclave palestinienne.

      Selon le communiqué, des pierres ont notamment été lancées en direction des soldats israéliens qui «  ont riposté en recourant aux moyens habituels utilisés pour disperser des manifestations et, dans des cas spécifiques, ont tiré à balles réelles conformément aux règles d’engagement  » en vigueur. L’armée assure que les informations sur la mort de l’adolescent palestinien seront examinées.

      SALFIT (Ma’an) — Three Palestinian medics were injured on Friday as Israeli settlers attacked an ambulance travelling from Nablus to Salfit, medical staff said.

      The ambulance was damaged and suffered a flat tire after the driver was forced off the main road by the stone-throwing.

      Hundreds of Israeli settlers have carried out multiple attacks on Palestinian homes and vehicles since Thursday night in the aftermath of an earlier shooting which killed two settlers near Nablus.

      Another ambulance was damaged by settlers in Nablus overnight, as Palestinian vehicles were set ablaze in both Nablus and Ramallah.

      The ambulance was reportedly en-route to aid Palestinians suffering from tear-gas inhalation when settlers attacked it, damaging the windshield.

      The occupied West Bank, especially the Nablus area, has been on virtual lock down since Eitam and Naama Henkin, both in their 30s, were shot by suspected Palestinian gunmen while driving on Thursday night between the illegal settlements of Itamar and Elon More.
