The Israeli forces on Monday afternoon have killed Mohammed Abu- Abada, 27 during a protest at the maritime border between the Gaza Strip and the Israeli territories, the Palestinian health ministry in the Gaza Strip said.

According to the ministry, Abu-Abada, 27 from the Shatti refugee camp arrived at Al-Shifa Medical Complex with a gunshot wound to his chest.

As many as 15 boats flying Palestinian flags attempted to break the naval siege imposed on Gaza Strip. In response, the Israeli forces fired tear gas canisters at the protesters causing dozens of people to suffer from breathing difficulties.

In response to the Israeli aggression on the peaceful protesters, a spokesman for Gaza’s National Committee for Breaking the Siege, Bassam Manasra said that “Gaza is still challenging the odds, facing the dangers, fighting for Palestine and confronting the worst forces of evil while paying the lives of its sons a price for dignity”.
