Israeli forces kill Gaza border protesters
« on: October 17, 2015, 05:40:47 pm »
Two Palestinians are killed and dozens more injured in the Gaza Strip protests, as two more are killed in the West Bank.

Thousands of Palestinians have protested across the occupied Palestinian territory in a "Day of Rage", as clashes with Israeli forces have left two Palestinian demonstrators dead and dozens more injured.

Tensions boiled over into violence earlier this month as Israeli incursions into the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound - the third holiest site in Islam - gave way to protests and clashes that have consumed much of the occupied West Bank, including East Jerusalem, and the Gaza Strip.

Amid tit-for-tat attacks between Israelis and Palestinians, the ongoing streak of violence has left dead at least 39 Palestinians - including suspected attackers, as well as unarmed protesters and bystanders - and seven Israelis.

In Gaza, thousands assembled in areas along the Israeli border, as Israeli forces responded with tear gas, stun grenades, rubber-coated steel bullets and live ammunition.

Yehya Abdulqader Farhat, 24, was shot and killed during confrontations at the Erez crossing, while at least 11 others were also injured by live fire, according the Palestinian Authority's Ministry of Health.

Mahmoud Humeida, 22, was fatally shot by Israeli security forces at protests in Shujayea.

Meanwhile, in the West Bank, two Palestinians were killed by Israeli forces on Friday. Ehab Hanani, 19, was fatally shot by Israeli soldiers in Beit Furik, a village near Nablus.

Earlier in the day, a Palestinian man was shot and killed after reportedly stabbing an Israeli soldier near Kiryat Arba, a Jewish-only settlement in the southern West Bank.
Last week, seven Palestinians were killed by Israeli fire during protests on the Gaza border, and an eighth man - 37-year-old Shawqi Jabr Obeid
