1 Palestinian Protester Killed On Gaza Border

Israeli soldiers shot dead a Palestinian teenager on Friday, who had been taking part in border protests, Gaza medical officials said.

More than 130 Palestinians have been killed in the Israel-Gaza border protests which have entered their fourth month and have drawn a lethal Israeli army response which describes them as violent.

Thousands took part in Friday’s protests, which marked 100 days since their launch, with some venturing close to the border fence, burning tires and throwing stones.

Israel’s military said Palestinian protesters hurled grenades, explosive devices and fire-bombs toward the Israeli soldiers across the border fence.

It said it fired toward a Palestinian who was attempting to infiltrate Israeli territory, but the incident appeared to be unrelated to the death of the teenager.

The Gaza Health Ministry said the 15-year-old boy killed was shot in the chest. It said 70 others were wounded, at least 20 by live fire, and others by tear gas.
