Pales­tini­ans mourn woman killed by Is­raeli fire BER­LIN Small plane crashes in eastern Ger­many, two dead

The Myanmar Times - - World -

Hun­dreds of Pales­tini­ans gath­ered Satur­day for the fu­neral of a woman killed by Is­raeli forces dur­ing a protest near the perime­ter fence, this year’s first fa­tal­ity from the weekly mass demon­stra­tions, and Is­raeli air­craft struck two Ha­mas tar­gets in re­sponse to rocket fire.

Amal al-Taramsi, a 43-yearold ac­tivist who had reg­u­larly at­tended the protests, was shot the day be­fore. Al-Mezan, a Pales­tinian hu­man rights group, said she was around 200 me­ters (yards) from the fence when she was shot in the head.

Of the 186 Pales­tini­ans killed since the protests were launched last spring, only three were women. A 21-yearold medic and a 14-year-old girl were killed last year. An Is­raeli sol­dier was also killed last year.

Amal’s mother, Hal­ima, sobbed as she sat in the cor­ner of her home wait­ing for her daugh­ter’s body, which was wrapped with a Pales­tinian flag.

The Is­raelis “should leave our lands and let us alone to live in free­dom,” she said, urg­ing Pales­tinian fac­tions to unite against Is­rael and US.Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump. – Ger­man po­lice say a small plane has crashed east of Ber­lin, killing two peo­ple.

The two-en­gine air­craft took off from the town of Straus­berg late Satur­day morn­ing and came down in a field near Praedikow, a few kilo­me­ters (miles) away.

Po­lice said on Twit­ter that it isn’t yet pos­si­ble to give a rea­son for the cause of the crash in which two men died. They gave no in­for­ma­tion on the vic­tims. –
