Palestinians killed in clashes with Israeli forces

Two Palestinians were shot dead – and many more injured – by Israeli forces during protests along the border with Gaza on Friday, the Palestinian enclave’s health ministry said, following a three-month spike in violence.

Mohammed Abu Zaida, 18, died after being shot in the neck, and 26-year-old Mohammad Qita, died after being shot in the stomach, ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra said.

Fifteen other Palestinians suffered gunshot wounds during the clashes east of the Bureij refugee camp in central Gaza, he added.

The Israeli army confirmed they had fired on protesters after they breached the “buffer zone” along the border.

“Dozens of rioters have breached the buffer zone and are attempting to damage the fence,” the spokeswoman said. “Forces shot rioters posing a threat of infiltration and the riot is ongoing.”

Israel and the Palestinian territories have seen a wave of violence in recent months, with 23 Israelis and 153 Palestinians killed since Oct. 1.

An American and an Eritrean have also died in the violence. Most of the Palestinians have been killed while carrying out gun, knife or car-ramming attacks on Israeli civilians or security forces.

Fridays are known as a day of protest across the Palestinian territories.
