Fir­ing slams Gaza truce

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - World -

Three Pales­tini­ans were killed and 131 were wounded on the Gaza Strip af­ter Is­raeli forces opened fire on pro­test­ers.

Vi­o­lence erupted be­tween Pales­tine and Is­rael in spite of a cease­fire, which largely held.

A 40-year-old Pales­tinian hit by Is­raeli fire on the Gaza bor­der has died of his wounds, tak­ing the death toll from protests on Fri­day to three.

Two jour­nal­ists and five medics were among 307 Pales­tini­ans wounded, some by tear-gas. Thurs­day had seen ex­ten­sive Is­raeli raids in re­tal­i­a­tion for the launch­ing of more than 180 rock­ets and mor­tar rounds by Ha­mas. It was one of the most se­ri­ous es­ca­la­tions since the 2014 Gaza war.
