Times of Oman - - OMAN/WORLD -

OC­CU­PIED JERUSALEM: A Pales­tinian wounded by Is­raeli fire dur­ing Gaza bor­der protests and clashes three weeks ago has died from his wounds, the health min­istry in the Ha­mas-run en­clave said Sun­day.

An­war Qu­day, 33, was wounded in the neck east of Khan Yu­nis in the south­ern Gaza Strip, said min­istry spokesman Ashraf Al Qu­dra.

At least 242 Pales­tini­ans have been killed since protests and clashes with Is­raeli forces erupted along the Gaza bor­der on March 30.

Two Is­raeli sol­diers have been killed over the same pe­riod, one by a Pales­tinian sniper and an­other dur­ing a botched spe­cial forces op­er­a­tion in­side Gaza. Protests and clashes have calmed in re­cent months amid an in­for­mal truce be­tween Is­rael and Ha­mas.
