Two killed, hundreds injured by Israeli gunfire on Palestinian protesters

Over the course of the last month, armed Israeli forces have massacred over a hundred Palestinians

Two more Palestinians have died as a result of gunshot wounds from IDF soldiers, one of which was a minor. As Palestinians continue the ‘Great March of Return’, Israeli forces are using every means at their disposal, including lethal ones, to disrupt and disband the peaceful protests.

The Palestine Chronicle reports:

Health officials in Gaza said two Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire during demonstrations. Hundreds of other protesters were also wounded.

The victims included 14-year-old Yasser Abu al-Naja who died after sustaining a gunshot wound to the head east of Khan Younis, Ashraf al-Qidra, spokesperson for Gaza’s health ministry, said.

Mohammad Fawzi Hamaydeh, 24, was also pronounced dead shortly after being shot by Israeli live fire in the abdomen and foot, east of Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip.

Among the 415 wounded at Friday’s demonstration, 11 were children. Three of the injured cases were severe.

Since Palestinians began staging mass rallies near the Gaza-Israeli fence on March 30, scores of protesters have been killed and thousands more injured by gunfire from Israeli troops and snipers.

Over the course of the last month, armed Israeli forces have massacred over a hundred Palestinians and injured over two thousand by some estimates. Israel’s actions have drawn international criticism including a condemnation from the UN General Assembly, much to US envoy Nikki Haley’s displeasure.

Fake news – most of the “injuries” are due to tear gas inhalation, and aren’t very serious.

The majority of the rest are Palestinians trying to breach the wall – they were warned.

As long as the IOU Saudi Mercan fiat filth toilet paper dollah pays for the khazarian squatters in occupied, apartheid Palestine the slaughter of the Semitic people of Palestine will continue to shame humanity that tolerates the garbage that infests Palestine. However, the day that USSAN Goyim tax cattle wake up and cure the zionazi disease at the core of crumbling USSA…that is the day that 6 million khazars will stampede back to the slums of Eastern Urupp, Russia and USSA where they were spawned. The only question is will these nations want the supremacist zionazi trash in their midst?

I’m not disputing the facts but the way you describe the events is tendentious. These protests were war by other means. Most of those who died were not innocent protesters but members of Hamas armed forces. Their objective was to break through the border fence to attack Israeli villages and farms and kill Jews. By not mentioning this you put a gloss on the facts that paints you as an anti-Semite.
