ONE DEAD IN GAZA RIOTS

-

GAZA CITY: A Palestinia­n man died and at least 15 more were wounded in night clashes with the Israeli army near the Gaza Strip border, the local health ministry said.

The 26-year-old man died of bullet injuries in the abdomen in the northern Jabaliya area, it said.

There were protests in several areas along the border with projectile­s being used against Israeli troops who retaliated at times.

Several factions in Gaza had called for demonstrat­ions to protest in particular against Israel’s almost 15-year-long blockade of the enclave.

Earlier this week, Barel Hadaria Shmueli, an Israeli sniper shot during clashes with Palestinia­ns on August 21, died of his injuries.

The August 21 violence left about 40 people wounded, according to Hamas, including a 12-year-old Palestinia­n boy and a 32-year-old man.
