GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip — 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.

Amal al-Taramsi, a 43-year-old ac­tivist who had reg­u­larly at­tended the protests, was shot the day be­fore.

Al-Mezan, a Pales­tinian hu­man rights group, said she was around 200 yards from the fence when she was shot in the head.
