One dead, hundreds injured in Gaza
7 Israeli forces on the Gaza frontier last Friday killed one person and wounded hundreds of Palestinians, who were demonstrating for the third week in a row.
Health officials in Gaza said 363 people were injured by live ammunition and teargas inhalation. They said a Gazan journalist was in a serious condition after being shot in the abdomen. The Palestine Red Crescent Society, said one of its medics was shot in the knee.
Rights groups accuse Israel of wanton use of live fire. Israel says the protests are a ploy by Gaza’s rulers Hamas to stage attacks, including using explosives, or to breach the border.
