At least six Palestinians killed by Israeli fire in Gaza March of Return protest
GAZA CITY - At least six Palestinians have lost their lives and nearly three hundred more sustained injuries when Israeli military forces opened fire on a group of protesters participating in an anti-occupation rally along the border between the besieged Gaza Strip and Israeli-occupied territories on Friday.

The Gaza Ministry of Health said in a statement that 14-year-old Mohammed Nayef al-Houm was fatally shot in the chest during “The Great March of Return” protests east of Bureij refugee camp on Friday evening.

The ministry identified three other slain Palestinians as Iyad Khalil al-Shaaer, 18, who was killed east of Gaza City; Mohammed Waleed Haniyeh, a 23-year old from the Al-Shati refugee camp; Mohammed Bassam Shakhsah, a 24-year old from east of Gaza city, and Mohammed Ali Inchassy, a 18-year old from east of Khan Younis.

The identities of the two remaining ones were not immediately available.

Meanwhile, one baby was reportedly rescued after being exposed to tear gas.

Another 290 protesters were also injured. A total of 135 demonstrators were admitted to hospitals and medical centers across Gaza Strip to receive medical treatment. Eighty-three people were struck with live bullets.



Twenty-two children, three medics and three journalists were among the injured Palestinians.

A minor and a young man were taken to hospital in critical condition. Both had suffered Israeli-inflicted gunshot wounds in the chest.

More than 190 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces ever since anti-occupation protest rallies began in the Gaza Strip on March 30. Approximately 20,000 Palestinians have also sustained injuries.

The Gaza clashes reached their peak on May 14, on the eve of the 70th anniversary of Nakba Day (Day of Catastrophe), which coincided this year with the US embassy relocation from Tel Aviv to occupied East Jerusalem al-Quds.



On June 13, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution, sponsored by Turkey and Algeria, condemning Israel for Palestinian civilian deaths in the Gaza Strip.

The resolution, which had been put forward on behalf of Arab and Muslim countries, garnered a strong majority of 120 votes in the 193-member assembly, with 8 votes against and 45 abstentions.

The resolution called on UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres to make proposals within 60 days “on ways and means for ensuring the safety, protection, and well-being of the Palestinian civilian population under Israeli occupation,” including “recommendations regarding an international protection mechanism.”

It also called for “immediate steps towards ending the closure and the restrictions imposed by Israel on movement and access into and out of the Gaza Strip.”
